Expert Line-up for Skills Expo 2010

Add to Scrapbook

Fiona Hyslop, Minister for Culture and External Relations, will address the Scottish Design Skills Symposium in Dundee on the 1st of September in 2010. The Symposium will bring together a strong panel of experts to work with participants to explore ways we can build better places to meet the challenge of climate change. Meeting this challenge requires us to ‘think and do’ differently; it means different ways of planning, design and delivery. The Skills Symposium draws together a panel of experts from these fields, along with academics and practitioners from Scotland and abroad.
