Scotland 2030 Programme: Launch event

29 March 2017, 6pm to 8pm, at the Scottish Parliament

What technological developments can we expect by 2030? How will Scotland change and how can we make that change positive for our society? These questions and others were considered at the launch of the Scotland 2030 Programme at the end of March.

Minecraft developer and videogames entrepreneur Chris van der Kuyl provided an expert take on the technological development we can expect, and award-winning folk singer and essayist Karine Polwart reflected on the cultural implications for our society, reading three imagined news stories from 2030.
