The events, which are open to all members of the public, will be held at the Scottish Agricultural College's (SAC) Edinburgh campus on 18th April from 7pm to 8pm, and Oatridge College on 19th April from 6pm to 7pm.
Barony College, Elmwood College, Oatridge College and the Scottish Agricultural College (SAC) launched their public consultation on 26th March and have come together to look at how the increasing demands of the land-based sector could be met by a new institute of further and higher education which combines their strengths and expertise.
Staff and students across the colleges, local communities, industry partners and other stakeholders from across South East Scotland are being encouraged to voice their opinion on the proposals.
The consultation runs from the 26th March to the 7th May (inclusive).Over the coming weeks, open events will be held at each of the colleges' campuses inviting questions and providing more information on the proposals.
Andy Robb, chair of the Going Further Partnership Board said, "We are encouraging all members of the public and businesses with an interest in the land-based sector to come and meet senior representatives from the colleges and to hear more about the consultation process.
"We recognise the value of the land-based sector to the South East Scotland economy. Our open sessions at the SAC Edinburgh and Oatridge campuses will give those working in or with an interest in the sector to come and give their views about the proposals.
"As part of this consultation, we are committed to ensuring as many views are heard as possible to help shape the new institution. The Edinburgh public consultations are just two of seven events across Scotland and interested parties can make their views known via post, web or social media."
