Creating A Fairer Scotland: What Matters To You?

Creating A Fairer Scotland: What Matters To You?

ISBN: 9781785444739

This document is designed to support a public conversation on how we together create a fairer Scotland. It describes some of the successes and challenges in Scotland today and a few ideas about what a fairer Scotland could look like.

Executive Summary

Scotland is a great country to call home. But we can make it an even better place. Achieving this will require a strong competitive economy and a fairer, more equal society. The two go hand in hand.

Right now people across Scotland are working to that end. But we believe that together we can do even more to secure better opportunities for

all of us and for future generations.

To get there, more of us need to join the conversation that is already happening about the kind of Scotland we want to see in the future. We hope this leaflet, and the discussion that follows, will help to do that. It describes some

of the successes and challenges in Scotland today and a few ideas about what a fairer Scotland could

look like. We want you to share your ideas as well, to tell us what matters to you.

By the end of 2015 we want to have created opportunities for the widest possible range of voices to be heard. This will include a series

of events in the autumn that brings together people from across the country to discuss what practical steps we need to take to create

a fairer Scotland.

The Scottish Government will respond to these ideas, and the wider conversation, setting out

what we will do to help create a better Scotland. We hope others will do the same.

So go on, it’s our Scotland, it’s time to have your say on our future.
