About the talk
Originally from Le Mans, Heloise Le Moal moved to Scotland in 2016 to study Forestry at the University of the Highlands and Islands. Last year, the Scottish Land Commission chose her as a winner of the 2020 National Student Award allowing her to carry out a research project. The Land Commission was established in 2017 by the Land Reform Act 2016 to advise the Scottish Government on Land Reform.

Her project was to carry out a comparative study between two different types of local woodlands: municipal forests on the continent and the unique system of community woodlands in Scotland. Due to travel restrictions, she limited her travels and carried out the research in her two hometowns: Inverness and Le Mans. Following her research on the ground, Heloise produced this year a series of videos, a report, and a blog to publish her findings.
