The Flow Country has experienced human influence for thousands of years and this landscape will continue to be shaped by those fortunate enough to call it their home. We want to work with communities to see that The Flow Country continues to be a world-class habitat, as well as ensuring that local people feel the benefit of this highest of heritage accolades.

As the World Heritage Site Nomination documentation progresses a number of elements will benefit from input from, and consultation with, the local communities, landowners and businesses.  We will aim to conduct online and, hopefully face to face events to get your input.  Once we have details of these events they will be publicised here, and through our social media channels.
