Explore how we'll deliver the strategy collaboratively and how we'll communicate progress.
Our Past, Our Future is a strategy for everyone and will be delivered collaboratively and collectively. Over its five year lifespan, we will work to deliver all of the outcomes to achieve the strategy mission. In this way, we'll sustain and enhance the benefits of Scotland’s historic environment for people and communities now and into the future.
We will be transparent in how we deliver the strategy by reporting on its progress.
Each year, Scotland’s Historic Environment Forum takes place. This is where leaders and policy-makers from the historic environment and other relevant sectors come together to take stock, discuss emerging and future issues, and set the strategic direction for the year. It was at this forum in 2022 that this new national strategy was announced.
Watch a recording below of Scotland’s Historic Environment Forum in 2022 to listen to the announcement.
Since 2007 we have been collecting data on the health of the historic environment and the impact of the resources used to manage and protect it.
Our Past, Our Future incorporates SHEA and will develop it to collect and assess more facts and figures to better report and understand Scotland’s historic environment.
Together, we'll deliver the priorities of this strategy. We need action across Scotland from a range of different organisations, individuals, and stakeholders.
