Scotland Loves Democracy is 100% non-political (and neutral on the Referendum) - our aim is support Scotland in increasing its skill in democratic and collective decision-making for the future that we will all share (whatever the outcome of individual issues to be decided)
A people powered movement for democratic innovation is gaining ground across Scotland. Questions, conversation, activity, and actions are fizzing and popping all over the place. From campaign activity on either side of the referendum to the community empowerment bill in parliament. Lovers of democracy are finding voice. Last year, inspired by and connected to the Icelandic assembly movement, So Say Scotland got folks Thinking Together about the Future of Scotland. This year, working with NEF Fellow Perry Walker of Open Up, So Say is producing a card game which creates a safe space for folk to play to learn, and hone their opinion on the referendum.
The 'Wee Play' card game is means for a group of people to discuss the issues around the independence question in a way that opens up the issues rather than closing them down to simply 'Aye' or 'Naw'.

We saw The Stove Network's latest project 'Dumfries Charter 14' and thought it a brilliant example of collective democracy....so we got in touch and came down to Dumfries at the weekend.
