Call for Ideas

Between January and April 2020 we held an open call for ideas to hear your views on what Scotland should be like in 2050 and the changes needed to get us there.   We provided a number of resources to stimulate debate

We were extremely pleased to receive nearly 350 written responses to our call for ideas as well as participation by 180 people at our Scotplan 2050 roadshow workshops.   We also spoke to around 100 people who came to our drop in sessions across the country.   Thank you all for participating. 

You can read the written responses and roadshow outputs by using the menu on this page. See also the independent Analysis of Responses to the Call for Ideas and Executive Summary

All of the evidence collected will inform the position statement, to be published later in the autumn, and draft NPF4, which is scheduled for publication in autumn 2021.
