A LEADING progressive think tank is set to find out what economic justice could mean for Scotland at an event next month.

The Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR) is running a talk, which is open to all, and will take place on Wednesday January 22 from 2.30pm to 5.00pm at The National Museum of Scotland, Chambers St, Edinburgh.

The keynote speaker – and the reason why the Yes DIY page is bringing this to your attention – is none other than First Minister Nicola Sturgeon who is scheduled to speak at 3pm.

The First Minister will open the event outlining her vision for the economy in Scotland, before a panel representing civil society, trade unions and business discuss key questions on fairness and prosperity in the Scottish economy.

IPPR said: “The UK economy is not working for people in Scotland and across the UK as a whole. It is no longer delivering rising living standards for a majority of the population. Too many people are in insecure jobs; young people are set to be poorer than their parents; many parts of the UK are being left behind as the nations and regions diverge further.

“The IPPR Commission on Economic Justice was established in 2016 in the wake of the vote to leave the EU to examine the challenges facing the UK economy and to make recommendations for reform.

IPPR Scotland is now delighted to invite you to join us for an event exploring paths to economic justice in Scotland.”

It’s free but registration is needed via Eventbrite.
