Even though it’s stories rather than statistics that change hearts and minds (and more on that shortly!) it can be helpful sometimes to have the evidence to back things up. But marshalling the facts and figures, and knowing which ones to trust can be difficult, especially for someone who’s not a full-time campaigner.
That’s where our briefings should come in handy. We’ve put together a set of easily readable documents that marshal the best and most recent evidence in one short two-pager for a range of topics.
First, we’ve got one for each of our three asks:
- Accessibility Briefing (PDF)
- Investment Briefing (PDF)
- Infrastructure Briefing (PDF)
Then we’ve got four more, which align with our tagline of making Scotland ‘healthier, wealthier and happier’.
- Health Briefing (PDF)
- Inequalities Briefing (PDF)
- Economy Briefing (PDF)
- Happiness Briefing (PDF)
The latter is important, by the way. Politics and planning policy can be difficult topics that raise strong emotions across the board. But sometimes it’s important to take a step back and consider what we often forget: the sheer joy of being human and getting about under your own steam, however you choose to do so. And who can argue with that?
