Hugh Kippen


As a freelance Environmental Consultant I have been looking at vacant and derelict land and it's impact on communitites. My focus has been on the potential for community management through using returns from renewable energy installations to part fund social-enterprise, and producing food and power for local consumption.

These are multi-disciplinary projects so I am keen to make more links with landscape architects, urban designers, renewable energy investors and engineers, along with parties interested or involved in social enterprises, and local food producers and processors.

We are working towards a funded exchange from Glasgow with groups from other urban areas where the links between nature, food and communities are strong, for knowledge exchange and to establish best practices here in Glasgow.
