What do you think about local democracy in Scotland? Does the system work for you, or do you believe it could be better? How can it be improved and strengthened? Is your community seizing every opportunity it has, and what are the challenges of doing so?
We would love to hear your thoughts in the form of a blog for our website. The very best will be printed in a booklet available later this year.
You can see some of the blogs we have already received from a range of perspectives here: www.scottishruralparliament.org.uk/category/blogs/.
To submit your blog, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Tuesday 28th February 2017. Blogs should be no more than 1000 words.
