Tue 12th September 2023

About the event

  • Do you want to take advantage of the increased interest in nature and wildfoods?
  • Do you want to know more about nature-related tourism trends?
  • Are you interested in building a sustainable rural enterprise or experience around nature?

Then this FREE interactive event could be for you!

Nature as a focus for travel continues to increase in popularity and Scottish businesses are ideally placed to take advantage of this tourism trend. Today’s visitors are keen to escape the everyday and connect with nature – so why not consider creating an enterprise to satisfy this need. This might be an on-farm experience, a rural retreat, a guided walk, or a wild food foraging experience.

The pandemic increased consumer interest in local producers, the natural environment, wildfoods, and provenance. Consumers are looking to reconnect with the processes & products, and the people producing them – with the provenance of a place. There is a move towards localism and authentic experiences – to connect with the unique identity of a destination, its history, culture, local skills, and nature. There are also opportunities for landowners to sustainably supply wildfoods.

This interactive webinar will explore the opportunities to build a sustainable business around nature, so join this discussion and learn from those who have developed successful nature-centred businesses.
