Flows to the Future is a project being delivered by the Peatlands Partnership, with RSPB as the lead body. The main funder of the project is the Heritage Lottery Fund, but this element of the project also has funding from Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
We want to deliver a creative online experience that brings this remote conservation project closer to home.

A short document (two sides of A4) should outline how you would approach the website development and a few key ideas around engagement on a subject that might not immediately grab the public’s attention.
