Exploration zones are curated conversations within our network which explore natural capital more widely or a specific element in more detail, and bring learning and ideas back to the network, creating spaces beyond focused topics, for interaction and cross-pollination between the hubs.

These zones are initiated and led by members of our network. The Scottish Forum secretariat provides the Basecamp network and wider infrastructure to enable communication and activity.


Current Explorations Zone topics include:

Community Benefits Network
Bringing together those with an interest in community wealth building and community benefit principles.

International Nature Finance

Building connections for Scotland across current international ecosystem market activities, signposting to initiatives and nature finance mechanisms, increasing knowledge and understanding of what works (or doesn’t work), potentially identifying innovative policy solutions.
