Nature Exchange offers Scottish arborists and natural heritage staff funded CPD places

Tree, forestry and natural heritage staff in Scotland are being encouraged to apply for funded places with one of Europe's leading exchange programmes.

Nature Exchange 2009 is offering workers of all levels the opportunity to benefit from continuous professional development.

The EU-funded project was a "driving force" behind Scotland's nature, forestry and wildlife agencies, said Libby Urquhart, managing director of Arch Network, which launched Nature Exchange.

"People gain essential skills, information and contacts from Europe," said Urquhart.

"It is crucial for Scotland's nature and environment agencies to develop essential skills, knowledge and contacts in a cost efficient way.

"Nature Exchange offers a unique opportunity to achieve these goals, while forging meaningful friendships with our European colleagues in the long term."
Nature Exchange 2009 projects will be held in Norway, Latvia, Iceland, Slovakia East, Bulgaria and Slovenia, Poland, Germany and Slovakia South, added Libby Urquhart. Funded places include travel, accommodation and meals.
