'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.' Margaret Mead, anthropologist
5.30 -7.30 pm at the Open University, 10 Drumsheugh Gardens
Edinburgh, EH3 7QJ
Scotland is faced with a referendum in 2014 on independence and it's widely accepted that there is not enough debate on the type of country we want to become or how – with or without independence - we could deal with some of the large-scale economic, employment, environmental and health challenges facing us.
The Centre, in conjunction with Argyll Publishing, is aiming to encourage such debate by publishing a series of short, accessible books – Postcards from Scotland. The first three titles appeared in November 2012.
The forth, Scotland's Local Food Revolution, by Mike Small, came out in June 2013
At this Centre event you heard short talks from four of the series' authors: Professor Phil Hanlon, Carol Craig, Alf Young and Mike Small. You also learned about the underlying rationale for the books, our hopes and aspirations for the series and forthcoming titles. There was also an opportunity for questions and discussion.
The event was free but early booking was essential.

Books were available for sale at the event.
