Tweed Forum was formed in 1991 "to promote the sustainable use of the whole of the Tweed catchment through holistic and integrated management and planning". In close partnership with our members, Tweed Forum works to protect, enhance and restore the rich natural, built and cultural heritage of the River Tweed and its tributaries. The Forum works at both the strategic level and the project level in order to achieve tangible benefits on the ground. From our inception as an informal liaison group, we have grown to become a leader in the field of integrated land and water management. A short video highlighting some of our recent work is available here.
