BUILDING  BRIDGES

#BuildingBridges

Scotland is home to millions of voices, each propelled by different priorities and values. While rewilding has gained much momentum on the ground in recent years, its future rests with a change in people's mindset.

We are committed to informing and inspiring fresh thinking around the potential of a rewilded Scotland, but we also recognise that for many people, perceiving the landscape differently isn’t an easy shift in thinking. We therefore support a just transition in Scotland's land use that respects people's cultural values and economic needs. 

Building Bridges seeks to dispel the notion that rewilding has to be a choice between nature and people. By building bridges across traditional boundaries, we can create new, shared solutions that work for both.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

  • Conversations around rewilding can be fractious, blocking pathways to positive change. Building knowledge, sharing stories and listening to different perspectives can help open these pathways.
  • A narrative of despair and division rarely propels people into behavioural change. Instead, we need to find common ground and unite around positive visions for Scotland's future.
  • Scotland has a critical role to play in climate breakdown and global nature loss, and rewilding is an important part of the solution to both.

 

Let’s rewrite nature’s story. Together.
