This consultation is closed now, but you can still see all the responses and read the background information Thank you to all who took part.

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. For more detailed information click

The Scottish Executive, in October 2001, will be preparing Scotland's input to the World Summit on Sustainable Development in South Africa in 2002. Your comments on the sort of Scotland that you want to live in will help them develop their response.
