Thinking Together Assembly

Thinking Together Assembly
07.02.13

‘Thinking Together’ A Citizens Assembly hosted by So Say Scotland in partnership with Future of Scotland, SCVO, Church of Scotland, Electoral Reform Society and others. 

We are gathering together 250 folk to spend a day in facilitated dialogue. Thinking, in a new way, about the future we want to see become a reality. Selecting participants to reflect Scotland’s diversity. Discussing our values along with what purpose and vision we feel is important for the Future of Scotland.

People work in groups, thinking together. Facilitators hold the space to make sure everyone has a say. Priorities from our morning session focus our afternoon. We consider how we can create a society, where what we care about is brought to life in the way we live, work and play.

Connecting with the lived experience of citizens, harnessing the inherent wisdom of folk. Building on the wealth of work underway. Engaging people in meaningful participation, crafting a future fit to face the challenges of our century.

Inspired and supported by the assembly movement in Iceland, this unique event is coming together in a tight timescale, on minimum resources. We welcome support from people and organisations to make Thinking Together the best possible success on the day.
