Our Programme

Developing the agenda for a bioregion involves a wide range of skills and capabilities:

The geographer’s knowledge of mapping; the conservation biologist’s expertise in biodiversity and habitats; the ecologist’s literacy in ecosystems; the economist’s ability to measure flows and leakage of money and resources; the service designer’s capacity to create platforms that enables regional actors to share and collaborate; the artist’s capacity to represent real-world phenomena in ways that change our perceptions and the historian’s perspective on how the past can help contextualise the actions we might take now to create a more liveable future.

As we get going, we’ll be organising our agenda throughout five stages:

Seeing

Seeing – investigating where we are now and where new ideas and practice are already emerging.

Understanding

Developing a better understanding of the potential of Bioregioning in helping us reshape our social, economic and shared lives.

Creating possibility

Designing and producing a series of interventions and projects that could grow Bioregioning in Tayside.

Sharing

Sharing ideas, practice and models that can advance the field quickly and support new communities of practice.

Connecting

Promoting a shared understanding of Bioregioning and offering the resources that Bioregioning Tayside has created and collected to be reused, recycled and rethought.
