About Dearest Scotland

Dearest Scotland is collecting visions by the people of Scotland for the future of Scotland.

SINCE THE START OF 2014, THE YEAR WE DECIDED AS A NATION OUR FATE, DEAREST SCOTLAND HAS BEEN INVITING FOLKS WITH A SCOTTISH CONNECTION TO WRITE TO THE COUNTRY’S FUTURE

Regardless of which way the referendum result went, we’ve been encouraging visions that focus down the line. What might Scotland look like in the future? What do we actually think about our nation?  What might our landscape, education system and high streets look like in five, ten, twenty years’ time. 

As an apolitical campaign focused on crowdsourcing future visions for Scotland for a common good, we’ve created Dearest Scotland as a place where letters to the future of the country are collected, published and shared with the world. Ultimately, we aim to give a platform to citizens’ voices from all over Scotland.

We’ve received letters from each of Scotland’s regions, and also farther afield from Scots who live abroad. From the Central Belt to the Shetlands, from our Highlands to our Borders, we continue to receive visions from every nook and cranny.
