Scotland’s Futures Forum

Scotland's Futures Forum ‒ N/A

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Scotland’s Futures Forum is the Scottish Parliament’s futures think-tank. It works on a non-party basis to promote research and to stimulate debate on the long-term challenges and opportunities that Scotland faces. We aim to inform MSPs and others and enable them to consider the effects of decisions taken today on Scotland’s long-term future. The Futures Forum seeks to bring fresh perspectives, ideas and creativity on how we might prepare now for the future. It hosts discussions and seminars and presents ideas to engage Scotland’s parliamentarians and challenge their thinking.
