A seminar where communities will be encouraged to take over and manage the land they live on has been suggested by Highland Council's strategy group.
Improvements to right to buy legislation and financial support for communities would also be discussed at the event.
The council wants to hold the event in Inverness in the spring.
Highlands and Islands Enterprise and the Scottish government rural policy team would be among those attending.
High profile community buyouts include estates in Assynt, Knoydart, Eigg and Gigha.
Large tracts of land have also been taken over on Harris, South Uist and Lewis.
