    You are warmly invited to join a #FairerScotland conversation - to explore social justice and sustainability issues – at 5.30 - 8.30pm Wednesday 25 November at Paterson’s Land Room G1, University of Edinburgh Moray House School of Education, Holyrood Road, EH8 8AQ. #FairerGreener
    We invite participants to imagine what they would like to see in 2030 and what values are important to us all?
    Dr Aileen McLeod, Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, and representatives of other stakeholders – will share perspectives on where we are now. Then we'll open up for conversations on:
    • What matters to you?
    • What's your vision for 2030?
    • How do we get there?
    • What is needed to deliver our vision?
    This is a great opportunity to engage in dialogue on a wide range of social, economic, environmental  justice, equalities, and international topics of common concern.  Our views will feed into the Fairer Scotland consultation and shape a plan for 2030. This will be discussed at a Citizens' Forum in December to come up with a Social Justice Action Plan for a Fairer Scotland early in 2016.
