2017 Update

A decade after the Scotland’s Futures Forum published this report, the Scottish Parliament's Festival of Politics brought together an expert panel to ask the question: “How much has changed?”. 

Chaired by Neil Findlay MSP, Convener of the Health and Sport Committee, the panel comprised Emma Crawshaw, chief executive of Crew 2000; Dr Iain McPhee, University of the West of Scotland; and David Liddell OBE, chief executive of the Scottish Drugs Forum. In a challenging and wide-ranging discussion, they gave their mid-way report card on what has happened and what remains to be done by 2025.
