There are many forward thinking individuals and groups in Scotland (the home of this group) and across the world. In our own ways we are striving to improve society and how we, individually and collectively, are valued. As we work disparately, our influence is limited. Can we all work together? Can we recognise and respect our differences and then build on the areas of agreement? By working together, can we create an informed alliance that has a significant positive impact on all our futures?
