On 23 September 2015, YAS held a reception at the Royal Society of Edinburgh to launch its first 5-year Strategic Plan, 2020 Vision to the public.
The reception was attended by members of YAS, and a variety of interested parties including, civil servants, journalists, local businesspeople, and fellows of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
Guests were welcomed with keynote speeches from YAS members Neil McLennan and Karly Kehoe, who introduced 2020 Vision before showing a short video which gave an overview of the forward-looking strategy.
Networking time followed the presentations. Guests were invited to view posters with examples of working group projects to date, and to discuss future projects with WG representatives.
