Every February we run a national rural housing conference at Birnam Arts in Perthshire, bringing together community workers, building professionals, policy makers and academics to discuss the issues facing the rural housing sector and share knowledge and experience of tackling rural housing need. Links to presentations from previous sessions are available below.

When the global pandemic meant we were unable to run the conference in 2021, we saw this as an opportunity to engage with a wider range of speakers and audience members than would normally be possible at our in-person conference to develop the online Rural Housing Summit. The Summit was a great success with over 50 speakers and 1,300 bookings from 3 continents, plus 1-2-1 sessions, Rural Voices Videos, case studies and countless other published resources, and you can access recordings of the live sessions on the Rural Housing Summit page. These recordings are made freely available thanks to our partnership with UN-Habitat and sponsorship from Ecology Building Society.
