Healthy | Wealthy | Wise

What kind of Scotland do we imagine for our children and grandchildren? Where can we find inspiration? Certainly not in today's punch-bag politics!
In a world reeling from a global pandemic, facing an inevitable climate crisis and a host of social and financial troubles, it's easy to feel discouraged. Yet, plenty of interesting and exciting opportunities lie ahead, if only one knows where to look.
This accessibly-written book intrigues and inspires, blending story-telling with factual writing to describe six big opportunities, and set out three key messages.
First, Scotland can succeed in the new world if it acts decisively and ambitiously to focus on new opportunities that we can see emerging. Second, these opportunities are there whatever our political choices. And third, success requires a 50 year view.

I have just finished reading Scotland 2070. Thank you for such timely foresight, so well written and so enjoyable to read. The idea of conversations to explore thinking is so good! I do hope it has the desired effect and that the value of the informed longer term view becomes more recognised and acted on.
