Event Details

Common Weal is hosting a live launch event for a new book: Sorted: A Handbook for a Better Scotland. And we would like to see as many people there as can make it to Glasgow.

The launch will take place on Saturday 3rd December 2022, at the Event Space, Drygate brewery, 5 Drygate, Glasgow G4 0UT

Our goal was to write a book that is both well informed and inspirational. It’s based on 10 years of policy work by Common Weal, covering all aspects of public life. We know that our ideas can travel and influence change, but only when they are put within reach of the people in Scotland. So come along bring friends, listen to a wide range of speakers, meet our team behind the book and purchase a copy.

We hope you will join us at this important time to highlight the vision and steps required for a shared future in an independent Scotland. This book imagines we are at the start of the first ten years of Scotland being an independent country (though there are plenty of things here to be getting on with as we build towards achieving this).

Sorted describes what kind of society we can now build and explains the guiding principles of how to go about building it. Then it takes every part of life in Scotland and puts forward a case for change. It describes how we can make independence and Scotland successful.

The book explains how to build our industrial base, tackle poverty, combat the climate crisis, raise wages, improve our quality of life and stay safe in an uncertain world – and much more besides. If there’s something you think needs fixed, you’ll probably find an explanation of how to fix it in these pages.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.

Please RSVP via Eventbrite. Please note, this is a free event, and we can fit plenty of people in the venue but please register in advance to secure your place. If you have any special access requirements, please let us know in advance by emailing [email protected]
