Join Community Land Scotland and three guests speakers, Malcolm McMillan from Machrihanish Airbase Community Company (solar), Moray Finch from Mull and Iona Community Trust (micro-hydro) and Jamie Adam from Isle of Canna Community Development Trust (wind), to hear about their revolutionary tales of installing community-owned renewable technologies; the pros and cons of installing such technologies; where to seek advice on community consultation, feasibility studies and procurement processes; the financial impact (initial expenditure and potential income generation); and how the income generated can progress other local, community-led initiatives leading to sustainable, resilient futures.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the webinar and take part in a Q&A after the presentations have finished.

The series of ‘Meet the Pioneers’ webinars will range from thematic discussions e.g. forestry, greenspace, affordable housing, heritage, climate change etc. to geographic clusters of community landowners with shared experiences and single-issue areas.
It is anticipated that this first series will run until the end of March 2021.
