UNESCO National Trail of Scotland Industry Webinar

21st July 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Join VisitScotland to learn about the new UNESCO National Trail of Scotland and how your business can get involved pre-launch.

VisitScotland would like to invite you to the UNESCO National Trail of Scotland industry webinar in partnership with Green Tourism on Wednesday 21 July from 2pm – 3.25pm.

Paula Ward, Regional Leadership Director at VisitScotland, will share with you information about the UNESCO National Trail of Scotland which is a new digital trail connecting all 13 UNESCO designations in Scotland. The designations that form part of the trail include:

  • Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere Reserve
  • Wester Ross UNESCO Biosphere Reserve
  • Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature
  • Glasgow UNESCO City of Music
  • Dundee UNESCO City of Design
  • North West Highlands UNESCO Global Geopark

  • Old and New Towns of Edinburgh UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Heart of Neolithic Orkney UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • New Lanark UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • The Forth Bridge UNESCO World Heritage Site

Due to launch in November, it’s the first national UNESCO trail anywhere in the world that brings together our country’s full range of UNESCO place-based designations (World Heritage Sites, Global Geoparks, Biospheres and Creative Cities) whilst promoting sustainable tourism.

The trail is designed to increase the value of visitors to the sites, increase geographic spread amongst visitors to Scottish UNESCO designations, and engage and involve local communities and local tourism businesses

Green Tourism – responsible for promoting greener ways for businesses and organisations to operate – will jointly host the webinar. Their internationally respected accreditation programme of Bronze, Silver and Gold awards recognises the commitment of tourism businesses which are actively working to become more sustainable and they want to tell you how you can get involved in this project.

In this webinar we will:

  • Give you an insight into how this exciting new trail has come about and the aims and objectives.
  • Signpost how you can become green accredited with Green Tourism and how this can benefit your business.
  • Discuss how you can get involved with the trail as we near launch.
  • Host a Q&A to answer any questions you may have.

We hope you can join us.
