It has never been more important to put power in your hands. This election has given us huge opportunities and huge challenges. The Councillors elected in 2017 are faced with the challenge of meeting the demands of a hugely energised democracy in Scotland.

Greens are committed to meeting that challenge by placing power in your hands, by providing the money that councils need to run their services, and by making sure that you, as a citizen and as a community, have the opportunity to play a greater role in the decisions that matter to your life.
