Review of Scottish Government National Outcomes
Post Date: 20 March 2023
The Scottish Government is consulting on its "National Outcomes".
Are the current ones, listed below, the right ones for the future?
Communities are being asked for their views.
The National Outcomes are designed to "reflect the values and aspirations of the people of Scotland" and help "track progress in reducing inequality". The National Outcomes also tie in with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The current National Outcomes of the Scottish Government are that people:
- grow up loved, safe and respected so that they realise their full potential
- live in communities that are inclusive, empowered, resilient and safe
- are creative and their vibrant and diverse cultures are expressed and enjoyed widely
- have a globally competitive, entrepreneurial, inclusive and sustainable economy
- are well educated, skilled and able to contribute to society
- value, enjoy, protect and enhance their environment
- have thriving and innovative businesses, with quality jobs and fair work for everyone
- are healthy and active
- respect, protect and fulfil human rights and live free from discrimination
- are open, connected and make a positive contribution internationally
- tackle poverty by sharing opportunities, wealth and power more equally
