Scots Indoors - Why have we lost our connection with nature with Lesley Riddoch

12:15pm‐ 2:00pm
Riddles Court
322 Lawnmarket, Royal Mile, Edinburgh, EH1 2PG




Information

Riddle's Court Conversations

A lunch time talk & conversation in the company of one of Scotland's most popular personalities in the media today - With a light lunch to fuel the dialogue!

The statistics show Scots lag far behind their nearest Nordic neighbour in every aspect of outdoor life (including outdoor kindergarten) and have shorter, less healthy lives. Is that just because we urbanised earlier or have centuries of exclusion from the land dented our appetite for access to nature?

The talk will draw on Lesley’s latest research on the traditions of huts and cabins in Norway and Scotland and her most recent books, Blossom : What Scotland Needs to Flourish, McSmorgasbord : What post-brexit Scotland can learn from the Nordics and Northern Neighbours.

Join us to hear Lesley’s analysis, enjoy a light lunch in the wonderful surroundings of Riddle’s Court and feel free to join the wider discussion on the issues and topics raised.
