Scotland: The Recovery

There are many challenges ahead as Scotland looks to recover from the economic disruption of COVID-19. These include the threat of further pandemics, the climate crisis, technological upheaval and demographic change.  This means, for Scotland’s recovery, radical action will be needed to jumpstart the economy and help us “build back better” as a more resilient society.

Held in October 2020, Holyrood’s Scotland: The Recovery conference brought together key stakeholders from across the public, private and third sectors to discuss how we can build a more resilient future. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Fiona Hislop MSP, Benny Higgins, Nadhim Zahawi MP, and more, got together to explore how, in recovery, Scotland can build a post-pandemic wellbeing economy that’s capable of meeting the challenges of the future.

Sessions from the conference are now available on-demand, offering an opportunity to learn from the day’s crucial discussions about Scotland’s recovery from the COVID-crisis.
