Join our conversation on stairheids, online and wherever you find yourself thinking about the Scotland you’d like to live in. This conversation is for grannies and bairns, students and scaffies. Its about what we already do well, and what we need. Share good ideas, old and new, for eveything from street lighting and healthcare to forest schools. What’s the work that needs done and what’s the education we’d like? Can a’ Jock Tamsons bairns get the same chances of beild, babyboxes and clean air? Is Scotland growing good food? What are enough bikes and bus passes, and is first footing still important? What is the security that will keep Scotland safe? We dinnae think its the weapons and warfare that pits us at risk and divides us from the world.
“Broken faimlies in lands we've hairriet
Will curse 'Scotlan the Brave' nae mair, nae mair
Black an white ane-til-ither mairriet
Mak the vile barracks o thair maisters bare...
In yer hoos aa the bairns o Adam
Will find breid, barley-bree an paintit rooms”
