Founded in 2007, we began our work by offering the first Carbon Management Masters with Glasgow University. Since then we've delivered multiple projects around carbon accounting before moving our focus onto sustainable land management and peatlands.
Over the next five years we shall expand our work on peatland restoration to include broader ecological restoration and management, and we will identify tactical opportunities, working with others to help mitigate the effects of climate change.
The Centre is a not-for-profit which focuses on practical rural climate solutions, working on peatland restoration, carbon management, sustainable land-use and environmental education.
We train practitioners in how to restore peatland; we advise policy makers and champions on carbon science; and we run educational programmes and projects to reduce damaging impacts on the planet. We play a key role in bringing people together, to form consensus and to restore carbon ecosystems.
Based in Dumfries and Galloway, we are an independent and agile hub for project work, policy transfer and applied research.
