This Open Forum, on the theme of Sustainable Communities and Regeneration in Scotland, took place in Glasgow and drew an audience of over 60 participants. The aim of the event was to hear about current Scottish Government policy, particularly from the aspect of mixed communities, and to learn more about others’ perspectives on how we can better link up policy and practice on sustainable development for community regeneration.

SURF is grateful to all participants for making this a successful Forum, particularly those who made a formal input:
