Scottish Parliament

Scotland's Futures Forum is the Scottish Parliament's futures think-tank. It works on a non-party basis to look beyond electoral horizons, promoting research and stimulating debate in the Parliament on the long-term challenges and opportunities that Scotland faces. Its work is designed to inform MSPs and others, enabling them to consider the effects of decisions taken today on Scotland's long-term future.

Scotland 2030 ProgrammeScotland 2030 Programme

Scotland’s Futures Forum’s major programme for the coming years is an exploration of Scotland’s culture and society and our aspirations for 2030 and beyond.

Taking a number of different perspectives and considering the societal and cultural impacts of existing and predicted trends, we will examine how Scotland can meet the challenges that emerge in order to exploit the opportunities that exist.
