Event description

Established with optimism, ambition, and an aim to do things differently, and based on principles of accountability and transparency, the Scottish Parliament has passed world-leading legislation and imbued a self-confidence in its electorate since 1999. So, what are its strengths and achievements and where can it do better?

Join the Presiding Officer and panellists to both look back, but more importantly, to look forward to the next 25 years, exploring the constitutional, national, and global challenges facing the Scottish Parliament and how it remains relevant to Scotland.
