The event will bring together rural stakeholders to agree a Manifesto for rural Scotland and decide what actions need to be taken and by who, to ensure rural communities are empowered, connected and sustainable.
The festival will raise awareness of research & development and practice on topics such as food industry, forestry, natural resource management, cultural landscape and improvement of quality of life in rural areas.
