Ian Cowan,

Ian is the first Programme Manager of the new Environmental Rights Centre for Scotland, based in Edinburgh.

Until recently he ran Highland Environmental Law, an environmental and planning law consultancy based near Inverness, advising and representing community groups and individuals opposing unsustainable development all over Scotland, such as opencast coal mining in Fife, coal bed methane extraction in the Central Belt and Dumfriesshire, a new town in Cairngorms National Park and ship-to-ship oil transfers in the Moray Firth.

He previously worked inhouse at the Scottish Environment Protection Agency for over 10 years, mainly as Regional Solicitor for the North of Scotland and lead solicitor on implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive and the Controlled Activities Regulations. He is a keen walker and cyclist, and would like to rock-climb more.

Ian works Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
