Scotland’s historic environment is an important part of the fabric of our society and contributes significantly to our nation’s economic, environmental, social, and cultural wellbeing.
The world has changed since Scotland’s historic environment strategy [OPiT] was first published in 2014. To ensure that our strategy is fit for purpose as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, HES has been commissioned by Scottish Ministers to lead a review of OPiT and is committed to publishing a new strategy in 2023 that will focus on the contribution that the historic environment can make to recovery and renewal.
BEFS are working with HES and the Scottish Government on these events, designed to engage the historic environment sector, related sector partners, as well as funding and development organisations, and Local Authorities.

Places at each workshop (whether in-person or on-line) are strictly limited, so please do sign-up at your earliest convenience should you wish to attend.
