Fable Vlog Part 2

The other two of Gerry's questions.
I cant think what to put for the first one so its just the Olympic values taken from the website

c) Which of the 7 Olympic values do we want to see in a future Scotland?
The 3 Olympic Values:
This value stands for giving your best, on the field of play or in the professional arena. It is not only about winning, but also about participating, making progress against personal goals, striving to be and to do your best in our daily lives and benefiting from the healthy combination of a strong body, mind and will.
This encourages us to consider sport as a tool for mutual understanding among individuals and people from all over the world. The Olympic Games inspire humanity to overcome political, economic, gender, racial or religious differences and forge friendships in spite of those differences.
This value incorporates respect for yourself, for others, for the rules and regulations, for sport and the environment. Related to sport, respect stands for fair play and for the fight against doping and other unethical behaviour.

And the 4 Paralympic values:

d) My part in change:
What is my part in the future?
Do my best?

What should we start doing?
Resurrecting the community of neighbourhoods? I dont know my neighbours in Bishopbriggs

What should we stop doing?
Trying to be independant? Also its a shame teaching has gone from boom to bust. Before primary teaching was advertised on TV, now with unis crammed with students there's no jobs after the placement year and how will kids benefit with only probationers? And lecturers are valued on their publishing abilities more than lecturing abilities.

What should we continue doing?
Renewable energies advancement. It feels right that we can use our bad weather.

  1. Also there still seems to be misunderstanding and disrespect between adults and kids. To help bridge the age gap young people should have more contact with student age young adults (like when families get former drug addicts to talk to their addicted kids)
