Our Work

We are engaged in talking and listening to people and communities across Scotland. We also produce reports and analysis promoting the benefits of cooperation and solidarity between Scotland and the rest of the UK. 

Over the last year, the think-tank has focussed on the response to the Coronavirus pandemic and urged greater cooperation between the Scottish Government and UK Government on key issues such as the economic recovery, the vaccine roll out and our testing regime. 

We also campaign for a modernised Union which is more responsive to Scotland’s needs and delivers the cooperative approach we all require. 

Scotland in a Zoom

We’re bringing people from across Scotland together who disagree on our country’s future to see if there’s a plan we all might agree on to take us forward. You can read our report on the findings of this ground-breaking new project that brought together scores of Yes and No voters from across Scotland here.

“Scotland in a Zoom” encouraged voters on both sides of the constitutional debate to actively listen and positively engage with each other, before seeing where they could find consensus on a path forward for the country.

More than 80 voters from across Scotland took part in the virtual project in February and March this year, in groups of twelve over Zoom. You can find out more and sign up to take part in future sessions here.

Commissions

From the threat of climate change to the response to the Covid pandemic, we know that it is only through cooperation with others that we can solve some of the biggest challenges we face. Our Scottish Future aims to show how cooperative working by governments within the United Kingdom can deliver the change we all seek.
 
To that end, we are setting up four Commissions – on healthcare, economic growth, the environment, and child poverty – which are all seeking to answer the same question: how can better cooperation between our governments deliver the happier, healthier, greener future we all desire?
 
We are bringing together some key thinkers and will publish our reports and analysis over the coming months.
