What's this all about? The Millennium debate on Scotland's future - in preparation
for the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. We need to think about sustainable development: How can we continue our path of economic growth while we reduce
our demands on the earth's resources, improve our environment and tackle poverty and social division? So,
over the next six months, we are gathering your views on what has been done well over the last 10 years, and what could be done better.
