As we seek to rebuild tourism and look toward the future of the industry, it's important we put the welfare of communities and our natural environment at the heart of our approach.

The priority now is to reset tourism in a responsible way; to work with communities to ensure that visitors and locals can both have a fantastic experience, with enough resources for both.

As lockdown restrictions change in Scotland, community engagement is key to our activity.

Highland collaboration

On Thursday 22 April, we virtually held a community session with local community development groups and key partners across the Highlands to facilitate conversation around the restart of tourism.

If you missed the session, or simply want to look over the content again, the two presentations given by our Regional Leadership Director, Chris Taylor, and from Highland Council are now available to download.
