The Future is Local Event

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.
