UNESCO Round View Sustainability Takeover
The Scottish Crannog Centre, Kenmore | £7 - £35
The RoundView is a big-picture, positive vision of sustainability that can inspire action. It sets out a clear, simple set of positive guidelines based on the opposites of the root causes of environmental damage.
Underpinned by research from the University of Manchester led by Joanne Tippett, the RoundView highlights global and local climate change issues, and inspires a call to action.
Visitors to the Crannog embark on the collection tour in the museum and think about the skills and sustainable ways of living in the past. Moving outside, visitors engage with sustainable crafts and demonstrations in the village before journeying into our open space beyond the village to experience The RoundView Takeover, which will include games, storytelling, music and discussion.
Throughout the RoundView takeover visitor will enjoy:
- Storytellers sharing and creating stories on the theme of sustainability and green living.
- Ancestor workshops that aim to connect to the past in ways that impact the future through museum collections.
- Crannog demonstrations - hands on activities engaging with foraged foods, sustainable textile production and green woodworking.
Tours will run every 45 mins.
The tour and takeover offer an opportunity to interpret our heritage in new ways and will inspire action towards a sustainable future. The takeover leads into a celebration of prehistoric and traditional skills and crafts over the weekend 4th and 5th June as part of their Iron Age Ingenuity Event.
