Heritage & Built Environment Manifestos
Explore heritage and built environment manifestos to become an advocate for Scotland’s historic environment.
Various heritage and built environment organisations, including a number of BEFS members, have produced manifestos ahead of the Scottish Parliament elections on 6 May 2021.
BEFS has compiled a list of manifestos in order to support everyone to become a successful advocate for the historic built environment ahead of and following the elections. The manifestos outline information on specific strategic issues, facts and details, and the corresponding language and messaging that can be adapted, adopted and supported by you.
For advice on becoming an advocate, including how to contact your local politicians, follow this toolkit by clicking the “Become an Advocate” button below.
