Deliver a just and green recovery from coronavirus
We shouldnt spend billions just to put our unequal society and unhealthy environment back the way it was before coronavi...
As we recover from the devastating impacts of coronavirus, we have a chance to transform our society for the better.
Coronavirus has reminded us of what is really important – looking after each other and our communities, our health and wellbeing, well funded public services, and a good and secure income for all.
As Scotland moves past a peak of infections our attention is turning to what comes next.
The choices we make now through our recovery plan and help for struggling firms will shape Scotland for decades to come. We can’t write a blank cheque to big polluters or restart an economy that only worked for the wealthy.
Instead we must reprogramme our economy so that it works for people and the planet. We must build back a better Scotland that focuses on our collective wellbeing, with strong public services and a decent income for all.
By doing our fair share of climate action and ensuring a Just Transition for workers, we can create good, green jobs across the country.
We can build a more engaged society where everyone has a say in the decisions that affect them.
To do this, we need to build a movement of support. Together with over 80 organisations in Scotland we’re calling for a Just and Green Recovery from coronavirus. Get involved and help us build back better.
Decisions being made by the Scottish Government now will shape our lives for years to come.
It is up to all of us to send a message about the future we want and ensure a just, green recovery.
Speakers from some of the groups involved in this work discuss why the recovery must put people and planet above profit, and how you can get involved in the movement to transform our society.
Over 80 civic society organisations from across different sectors of Scottish life have written to the First Minister calling for a radical response to the coronavirus recovery.
The signatories from charities, trade unions and community groups set out 5 steps for the forthcoming recovery plan and economic stimulus that will enable the building of a fairer, greener and more equal society.
This campaign is growing and developing and would love to have your organisation’s involvement. By working together we can increase our reach and impact, giving us a better chance of securing the recovery we collectively need.
