Alastair McIntosh has been described by BBC TV as "one of the world's leading environmental campaigners." A pioneer of modern land reform in Scotland, he helped bring the Isle of Eigg into community ownership. On the Isle of Harris he negotiated withdrawal of the world's biggest cement company (Lafarge) from a devastating "superquarry" plan. He then served, unpaid to avoid conflicts of interest, on the company's Sustainability Stakeholders Panel for 10 years to help further corporate social and environmental responsibility.
Join us for this online event where Alister will be talking about his latest book, Riders on the Storm: The Climate Crisis and the Survival of Being (Birlinn, 2020).
