Ask Nicola Sturgeon to help us Build Back Better from coronavirus. As we rebuild from coronavirus, we have a chance to transform our society for the better. This crisis has reminded us about what is really important – supporting each other and our communities, our health and wellbeing, secure incomes, public services like the NHS and social care, and a healthy environment. But it has also highlighted and deepened the devastating inequalities in our society and shown where we need to do better. The decisions being made by the Scottish Government now will shape our lives for generations. It is up to all of us to send a message about the future we want and ensure a just, green recovery. If we choose, we can reprogramme our economy so that it works for people’s wellbeing and protects our environment. We can build a fairer, greener Scotland where we all have access to good public services and get a decent income. We can protect everyone from the injustice of poverty.
