CLIMATE ASSEMBLY: The Power of People

The Scottish Government has responded to the Scottish Climate Assembly with a full report of their own and detailed comments on each of the 83 recommendations put forward by the Assembly. This is an encouraging step up from their response to the first Scottish Citizens’ Assembly which didn’t do much more than point at the 2021 Programme for Government and claim it as fulfilment of their promise even if it barely touched on their recommendations.

Common Weal says the response is an encouraging step forward & is a measure of how powerful citizens can be if given the chance to truly tell others what they want! Read Common Weal’s positive response here.
