Our chairman, Lorne MacLeod, was asked by Carnegie UK Trust
to represent them at a conference of European charitable foundations and development practitioners held in Milan on 13 and 14 October.
Lorne was asked to speak about community land ownership in Scotland, and to explain how the successful Scottish model might be replicated elsewhere in Europe, as well as in developing countries.
Lorne commented; "many communities throughout the world are frustrated by their lack of access to land for development purposes, and it is important to come together to discuss ways of tackling issues. The Scottish community land experience is becoming increasingly well known internationally, and it is essential that we share our knowledge and experiences, and offer support to other communities throughout the world
