INDOOR SCOTS – WHY HAVE WE LOST OUR CONNECTION WITH NATURE?

TradFest Edinburgh
Riddle's Court
Tradfest
Scottish Storytelling Centre

With Lesley Riddoch.

Insights and perspectives from one of Scotland’s most thoughtful and
popular personalities today. Lesley draws on her latest research and
most recent books, ‘Blossom: What Scotland Needs to Flourish’ and
‘McSmorgasbord: What post-Brexit Scotland can learn from the Nordics and
Northern Neighbours’, to analyse how statistics show Scots lag far
behind their nearest Nordic neighbours in every aspect of outdoor life,
with shorter, less healthy lives. Did we urbanise earlier, or have
centuries of exclusion from the land dented our appetite for access to
nature? Part of Riddle’s Court’s new ‘Issues in Contemporary Scottish
Society’ series, with a light lunch included.
