The world is going through very challenging times! Climate change, Brexit, the Covid-19 pandemic, racism and the refugee crisis are just a few of the issues we hear about every day. But there are also lots of exciting new ideas, creations and opportunities which make it possible to imagine a brighter future.
Calling all children!
This is why we’re calling all children, ages 8-14, to submit a digital poster or short animation showing their ideas for the future.
Every couple of years, the Young Academy of Scotland sets out five Grand Challenges to help us focus the work we do, building a future for everyone that is healthier, smarter, more equal and sustainable.
In our recent film Our Future Scotland, we asked lots of adults to share their ideas for the future with us. In 2021, we want YOU to help us decide what our next Grand Challenges should be.
You are the future! Will you share your dreams with us? What do you want Your Future Scotland to look like? What problems must we tackle?
