Scottish Rural Parliament @ Ryan Centre

The Scottish Rural Parliament brings together people from rural communities with decision-makers, for three days of celebration and exploration. Participants examine a wide-range of issues affecting rural communities and make recommendations for change.

Anyone who lives or works in rural Scotland, or who makes decisions which affect rural Scotland, can attend the Scottish Rural Parliament. It is free for people from community organisations to attend.

We aim to ensure that each region of Scotland is well represented and that there is a good mix of people with different backgrounds and interests.
