Just about time for the third of four Comrie Conversations this year. The September discussion has three speakers taking part.
We are delighted to announce that we will have a representative from the Scottish Youth Parliament (speaker tbc) to install lively discussion from a youth perspective. We are going to do some outreach at the schools to see if we can boost the younger audience to take part on the 24th Sept. (See http://www.syp.org.uk/)
Karine Polwart is, of course, a fantastic musician, singer and songwriter. She is also a passionate advocate for the future she would like to see for our country and making this decision based, above all, on values (seehttp://www.karinepolwart.com/)
Phil Hanlon is Professor of Public Health at Glasgow University. Phil has recently published a great wee book called “After Now – what next for a healthy Scotland”. He will set out what he sees as the big challenges we face to create a healthier Scotland (seehttp://www.postcardsfromscotland.co.uk/01afternow.html)
