DISCOVERY & INVENTION, ORIGIN, SCOTLAND
VISIT OF THE SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT & SUSTAINABILITY EVENT – TUESDAY, MARCH 10, 2020
British politics may seem complicated, but hopefully our trip to the Scottish Parliament can help explain things a little bit. The tour begins with a speech by Hamish at the Edinburgh Center on Environmental Policy and Sustainability. Some snacks are provided, then we go down to Scottish Parliament at Holyrood. At arrival Alison Johnstone MSP for Lothian and co-chair of the Scottish Green Party will give a talk (if your agenda allows it). on the goals and policies of your party and can answer any questions you might have. Afterwards the tour of the Parliament begins, where you can see the different buildings and rooms of the Parliament. You can also see where all the action takes place in the debating chamber. You are not interested in politics? The Houses of Parliament itself is a great example of postmodern architecture designed by Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue. The Parliament has won several architectural prizes, including the 2005 Stirling Prize, and is considered one of Scotland's best modern buildings. This is a great opportunity to get a glimpse into the inner workings of the Scottish Parliament and British politics.
