Scotland’s sustainable future


Màiri McAllan is one of the very talented SNP women candidates we expect to hear a lot more of in the future. She is the SNP candidate for Clydesdale.

If elected, she intends to:

“help build a recovery from Covid-19 which is fair, inclusive, green and focused on the wellbeing of our people and planet. This year has been tough but amid the darkness and disruption we have a chance to piece our economy and society back together differently.

I will champion a green recovery where we capture the possibilities of our move to net-zero to creates good, green jobs and a sustainable investment in our communities.”

Màiri McAllan Is Special Adviser to the First Minister of Scotland with responsibility for Environment, Climate Change, Land Reform and Renewable Energy policy, a position she has held since January last year. A law graduate of Glasgow University, she is also Bachelor of Laws from Ghent University under the Erasmus scheme and a top University of Glasgow Diploma student in Human Rights. As part of the expected new intake of talented women MSPs to the SNP benches, Newsnet thinks we will be seeing a lot more of Màiri McAllan in the future.

Màiri is also a co-founder of RebLaw Scotland, based on the concept of ‘Rebellious Lawyering’. RebLaw is a public interest movement seeking to harness legal skills in the pursuit of social justice
