The Scotland’s Towns Conference has become established as the premier event in Scotland to learn about the national and local issues confronting Scotland’s towns and the ways in which innovative and imaginative local solutions are creating sustainable communities. With plenty of opportunities to discuss, debate, contribute, network and consume quantities of bacon rolls, muffins and coffee, this conference has something for everyone interested and involved in Scotland’s towns.

I haven’t used this blog for promoting events and activities, but this is one that deserves promotion. I will be there, and hope you will too. I will try to report here on my version of the content and lessons as soon after the conference as possible.
