Jubilee Scotland works for an end to unfair global debt by supporting and empowering a broad coalition of passionate campaigners to take action for economic justice.
Jubilee Scotland wants to see millions of people lift themselves out of poverty as more governments in developing countries stop paying back unjust and unpayable debts and invest more in citizen-determined needs, such as health, education and livelihoods.
The life chances of hundreds of millions of people are being reduced by the burden of unjust debt and sustained international campaigning is required to challenge these debts if other efforts to reduce poverty, inequality and conflict are to be effective. Fortunately, politicians, companies and institutions based in or linked to Scotland can influence and change the situation, and thousands of people in Scotland have shown that they care about this issue by joining effective campaigns designed by Jubilee Scotland and its partners.
Jubilee Scotland inspires and equips people to take action against unjust debts and debt systems that contribute to global poverty, inequality and conflict.
Jubilee Scotland aims to:
- To strengthen and broaden the debt justice movement in Scotland.
- To catalyse and encourage effective action on unjust debt by Scottish institutions, particularly the Scottish Government and Parliament
- To work in solidarity with debt campaigns operating in the UK and internationally.
