I will be on the panel for the first of a series of debates organised by the James Hutton Institute.

'The Squeezed Middle' debate will take place on 30 August 2012, 1.30-4.30pm at the Royal Society of Edinburgh and is aimed to appeal to researchers, policymakers and stakeholders. 

It is free!  To register see the JHI webpage.

"The debate will focus on the land zones which exist between quality farmland and high mountains, in which it is especially challenging to plan the right blend of land uses to best meet policy objectives and societal demands."

Other panellists are: Professor Des Thompson, Scottish Natural Heritage; Professor Bill Slee, James Hutton Institute; and Dr Andrew Barbour, Forestry Commission Scotland.
