AS we wait to fully emerge from the pandemic it is encouraging that Yes supporters are already looking to the future.

On Monday, August 23 at 6.30pm,  as part of the Just Festival, think tank Common Weal’s Dr Craig Dalzell will be discussing Resilient Scotland, a plan for Scotland rebuild society after the pandemic.

The organisers said: “The Resilient Scotland recovery plan is based on good jobs, economic equality, environmental sustainability and social cohesion, fuelled by a green reindustrialisation.

“Join Dr Craig Dalzell in a conversation around the key themes contained within this plan, the challenges it faces and how Scotland’s path to recovery sits alongside the wider global impact.”
