NatureScot and the Scottish Forum on Natural Capital (SFNC) hosted the “Why invest in nature?” short film competition in 2019, seeking entries that would encourage businesses to see the benefits of the natural world. The contest was open for young people aged 16-30 and we received some very impressive submissions.
