Activity aims:

This activity helps students understand the breadth of land uses in Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park and demonstrate how different land users can support and conflict with each other. Students must think of different land uses in the national park and decide how these land uses/users will work together; will it be positive or negative? By using different coloured string a ‘conflict web’ will be created demonstrating how different land uses are linked together.

Learning outcomes

  • To help students understand the breadth of land uses in the national park and demonstrate how different land users can support and conflict with each other.
  • To demonstrate and encourage discussion; that when conflict does occur, the solution is not always straightforward and can have negative as well as positive consequences to other land users.
  • To help students understand the difficult role that the National Park Authority and our partner agencies have to face when dealing the variety of land uses in the Park.

  1. Full activity guide
  2. Prompt cards (ideas for land uses)
  3. Land use video
  4. Sticky name labels, marker pens, large ball of green wool or ribbon, large ball of red wool or ribbon
