In this time of change we ask real Scots: who should have power in Scotland?
Most of us agree should be governed by the people, for the people but do our politicians always know about or act in the interests of voters?
We held a 'People's Gathering' - a one day assembly of ordinary people to find out what they think.
We asked all our delegates:
It's 2030, and Scotland is admired as a shining example of democracy and democratic participation. What three aspects of this society please you most?
The Gathering shared our ideas about this future, and then spent some time thinking about how we might get there.
The event was a huge success with plenty of exciting discussion and some bold new ideas. We will be producing a report of the day which will feed in to the next stage in our Democracy-Max programme Find out more about what happened at the People's Gathering...
