In May 2017 we took our pop-up Global Goals exhibition to the Scottish Parliament for a week to encourage MSPs to get involved.

Around 100 or Scotland's 129 MSPs visited our exhibition to learn about Malawi links in their constituency , find out about the Global Goals, and pledge their support for the SMP to champion one specific Global Goal in Parliament.

MSPs recorded a special video message outlining their support and tweeted photos of them at the exhibition.

The First Minister and all five Party Leaders were quick to be involved, as was the President Officer, the Deputy Presiding Officers, Cabinet Secretaries and Ministers, and dozens of MSPs from each party.

Through the week various MSPs used various Parliamentary debates and official engagements to outline their support for the Global Goals, and the importance that Scotland continues as a world-leader in their delivery.

We're truly inspired and immensely grateful for this overwhelming message of all-party support for the Scotland Malawi Partnership and the UN's Global Goals from Scotland's elected members.
