On May 3rd people across Scotland will go to the polls to decide who will run our councils. Important decisions on our environment, public transport, social services and education, all of which have a huge impact on students and young people, will be made by Scotland’s voters.
If you’re in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling or Aberdeen you can vote for a Young Green or Green candidate and put the issues that matter at the top of the local agenda. That means:
New, tougher legislation to deal with landlords and the standard of property
Community energy companies to save you money and home insulation schemes to give you a warmer winter and a cooler climate
A common sense public transport policy to keep fares low and improve the quality of your service
Local tax reform to introduce a fairer tax system which better reflects what people can afford to pay.
Cycling infrastructure to reduce road deaths and to help you commute to work or uni by bike.
A strong voice for environmental and social justice in our towns and cities.
