Call for Moray people to have their say at first Scottish Rural Parliament

A public event to discuss the first Scottish Rural Parliament is to be held in Elgin next month.

Hosted by tsiMoray, the event provides people in Moray with an opportunity to have their say on the first ever Scottish Rural Parliament which will take place over three days in Oban later this year.

The parliament will gather together 400 organisations and individuals from communities throughout Scotland – with views and opinions expressed at the Elgin event providing an insight into the parliament and providing people in Moray with an opportunity to contribute.

Chief Officer of tsiMORAY, Fabio Villani, explained: “We are very excited to be facilitating this is a valuable opportunity for people in Moray to find out more about the Scottish Rural Parliament and to contribute their opinions to the discussions that will take place at the very first Scottish Rural Parliament later this year.

“I urge you to attend the event if you can and help us to share the challenges and achievements of our community.”

The first Scottish Rural Parliament will be taking place later this year in Oban, Argyll & Bute from November 6 to November 8. It will produce a shared vision for rural Scotland with identified actions to be taken at community, regional, national and EU level, whilst celebrating the strengths and achievements of rural communities.

Unlike most Parliaments, a Rural Parliament is a bottom-up process of discussion and debate which anyone can participate in, rather than people being elected to represent other people’s views.

The tsiMoray event will be held at the Inkwell on Francis Place in Elgin on Thursday, September 4 from 6pm until 9pm.
