Farmers in Scotland are currently receiving financial support from the government each year. The agricultural budget amounts to over half a billion pounds annually – this is a significant investment for the public purse.
The way that the money is distributed to farmers is complicated. The system is designed in such a way that the largest businesses, with the largest land areas get the most financial support – not those who are most in need of the income. Only a small proportion of the budget is directed at protecting nature or mitigating climate change.
The Scottish Government are trying to improve on the former system, and are currently consulting on a new Agriculture Bill, which is aiming to: “support farmer and crofters to ensure their economic sustainability as we deal with the twin global emergencies of climate change and biodiversity whilst also continuing to produce high-quality food.”

Nourish Scotland is working with Scottish Environment LINK, the Scottish Government and interested organisations across Scotland to run a series of workshops to enable a wide range of people to have their say.
This workshop will be repeated on

The Centre for Advanced Technology's online Zero Carbon Britain course exploring climate solutions – the science says we must, the technology says we can, time to say we will!
Working with a range of local Councils, we have developed a two day, interactive, online course offering an in-depth look at CAT’s flagship research project, Zero Carbon Britain. Connect with a network of others working and studying in the field and explore the radical changes needed to rise to the climate challenge.
. . . .
The new report published in 2019, Zero Carbon Britain: Rising to the Climate Emergency, incorporates the very latest developments in science and technology to show that we can create a zero carbon Britain using only proven technology.
TBI Convenor Julian Paren attended this course two years ago and highly recommends it.
TBI members should be able to obtain a 70% discount on the cost through our membership of SCCAN.
