Forum 2020 – Reconnecting Scotland
Let’s together make 2021 a turning point for the Scottish economy – staying strong through the challenges of today and shaping a better future for us all.
We’ve moved the SCDI Forum online, but you can expect the same unique gathering of knowledge and talent from all parts the Scottish economy. You’ll have opportunities to engage with leaders as they share their insights and visions. Through our combined commitment and creative thinking, we can support our businesses, and achieve better outcomes for people and planet.
- Changing strategies to rebuild the global economy
- Scotland’s green and blue recovery – investing in our places and industries to create high value-jobs and increased productivity
- The UK’s economic and political future with Robert Peston
- Net Zero – the economic and social opportunity which business and industry can deliver and how we pay for it
- A prosperous economy for all of Scotland. How resilient are our regions and communities and how they are reinventing themselves for the future?
- Harnessing science and technology for a better world. Scotland’s contribution to solving societal challenges and the knowledge and skills we need for the future.
Let’s reconnect Scotland to rethink and restart our economy. We really hope that all SCDI members and partners will be able to join us then.
