AECOM have been commissioned by the Scottish Government to conduct focus groups with members of the public from five different locations across coastal communities in Scotland.
Focus groups in Stonehaven (Aberdeenshire), Dundee City and Buckie (Moray) will be held in person, and focus groups in Lewis (Na h-Eileanan Siar) and Orkney Island will be held online.
AECOM would like to know what specific social and economic issues need to be considered for the development of offshore wind farms and decarbonisation, to inform policy decisions. You do not need to a be a specialist in offshore wind, AECOM are looking for people from different backgrounds who live in these five areas.The focus groups are expected to take place between 9 -31 October 2023 and last 90-120 minutes.
Participants will be compensated with a £40 voucher after attending the discussion.
