What are your aspirations for the Inner Forth landscape by 2040?

People living or working in the east of Scotland are being urged to take part in a study to help shape the Inner Forth landscape of the future.
They’re encouraged to get in touch with researchers from the University of Edinburgh, who are carrying out the study, looking into local visions for the future of the Inner Forth area.
Using an innovative interview format, called STREAMLINE, the study invites members of the local community to share their ideas about what the region should look like by 2040.
The research is part of a pan-European project dubbed OPERAs, which brings together 27 partners from across Europe to develop practical applications of cutting-edge ecosystem science.
For the Inner Forth 2040 study, researchers are looking for people living or working in the area to take part in a one-hour interview exploring their vision for the area.
According to organisers, the new STREAMLINE format helps interviewees build their ideal future for the Inner Forth landscape through a series of colourful canvasses. Participants so far have described the exercise as ‘thought-provoking’, ‘interesting’ and ‘engaging’.
If you would like to take part, get in touch with the research lead, Aster de Vries Lentsch, by emailing aster.devrieslentsch@ed.ac.uk; or by phone on 07501590342.
