Beyond Borders Scotland

Description

Beyond Borders Scotland is an Edinburgh-based not-for-profit organisation dedicated to facilitating small-nation dialogue and international cultural exchange.

Each year, we run a festival at Traquair House in the Borders called Books, Borders and Bikes. This year (2013) it runs from the 16th to 18th August. The festival brings together authors, politicians, cultural leaders and artists from all over the world for a weekend of panel debates on a number of topical global and national issues, literary walks around the grounds of Traquair and cycle rides in the surrounding area.

This year's speakers include Sir Kieran Prendergast, Tessa Tennant, Robert Wild and Tom Burke. They will be discussing issues such as the importance of protecting Scotland's woodlands, Scotland's ancient natural sites and we will also have a Talking Science event in partnership with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh exploring Traquair's historic landscape.
