Parliamentary shadowing scheme

Our parliamentary shadowing scheme offers early and mid-career ecologists the chance to gain an inside view of the policy world.

Participants spend two days shadowing senior policymakers from Westminster, Brussels or the devolved nations, gaining a unique insight into the day-to-day workings of government and parliament.

Applications are open again for our second placement of 2017, with Roseanna Cunningham MSP (Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform.), as we weren’t able to fill the placement in such a short timeframe. The placement will now take place between 29 and 30 November, and applications must be received by 9:00 on Wednesday 22 November.
