On the 26th of May 2017 we had the honour and privilege of hosting President Barack Obama here in Scotland.
To celebrate and mark that occasion the Hunter Foundation invited pupils in secondary schools across Scotland to submit an essay outlining their priorities if they had the opportunity to rule Scotland.
The Hunter Foundation produced this e-book (which can be found here) with all the submissions made. I found this very interesting to read as it gives us decision makers an insight of the views of our younger generation.
Their voices tell us they care about our communities, our environment, equality for all, embracing our differences, caring for those who can’t care for themselves, mental health, ambition and reaching for the stars.
We are a small nation that can so easily punch above its weight, by enabling young voices we will achieve so much more for Scotland.
I truly hope you enjoy this book.
