The Future is Local Event
Scottish Community Alliance
Senscot was well represented last Friday – when the 17 networks which comprise the Scottish Community Alliance – ‘occupied’ the Holyrood parliament for a day conference entitled ‘the Future is Local’.
Three quick personal impressions: journalist Lesley Riddoch’s energy and intelligence is a singular asset to our movement; likewise the leadership of Derek McKay – the minister for Local Government and Planning – he understands and supports local empowerment. But mostly I felt the pride – the historical significance – of 200 active citizens assembling in our parliament.
