The Flow Country in the north of Scotland is the largest expanse of blanket bog in Europe. It is an area of wide open landscapes that is special for many reasons. These include its wildlife, and also the role of the underlying peat as a vast carbon store, which plays an important role in the fight against climate change. The Peatlands Partnership is a group of organisations with an interest in the management and future of the peatlands. In 2014 the Peatlands Partnership received funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund for a five year project named Flows to the Future. This project, which is led by RSPB Scotland, has funding and support from many organisations, communities and individuals.
