SCDI Forum 2021

This 50th Forum coincides with our 90th year as an organisation. The SCDI community remains as passionate and active as ever, and it is our pleasure to confirm another, forward-thinking and inclusive event with facilitator Sally Magnusson.

On 18 and 19 November 2021, SCDI will bring leaders from business, politics, the public and third sector, and education establishments together at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

Scotland moves into recovery from the COVID pandemic and the EU exit, against a backdrop of global changes in business, politics and the economy.

This year’s Forum comes at a particularly crucial time, just after the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, and it will continue the vital conversation on how to accelerate action to address the escalating issue of climate change.

While there are undoubtedly significant economic, social, and ecological challenges to be met, this Forum will look ahead to the opportunities for positive transformation for Scotland’s people, places and plans.
