GCILS’  Dr Giedre Jokubauskaite will be speaking at a seminar organised by the Scottish Land Commission, based on the paper that she co-authored with Dr Jill Robbie, Lecturer in Private Law at University of Glasgow.

The event, titled “The Carbon Rush: Understanding the role of carbon, offsetting and investing in the land market” is taking place on 31 May and will look at the published Land Lines discussion papers by Prof Sir Dieter Helm, Dr Jill Robbie and Dr Giedre Jokubauskaite, exploring the role of carbon in land ownership and use. Chaired by Scottish Land Commissioner Megan MacInnes, the panel includes the authors of the Land Lines discussion paper on carbon rights, Dr Robbie and Dr Jokubauskaite, alongside Don MacLeod of Turcan Connell, and Prof Dave Reay, University of Edinburgh. The panel will discuss carbon offsetting, the value of carbon, carbon rights and what all of this means for Scotland’s land. The hour-long session will include a Q&A for your chance to put your questions to the panel and take part in the discussion.
