young people in the Lothians are being invited to enter a competition which aims to increase innovation and creativity.

Vision for Scotland 2050 asks youngsters to develop a piece of creative work demonstrating their vision of the country in 38 years’ time.

The Minister for Learning, Science and Scotland’s Languages, Dr Alasdair Allan MSP said: “Scotland is a successful and productive country. Scots have given much to humanity, science, business and the arts. But we do face many changes and challenges in the years ahead in all areas of our lives, such as the impact of technology, our environment and a changing economy.

“I am delighted to support the Scotland 2050 competition being jointly run by the Scottish Qualifications Authority and Scottish Business in the Community that asks young people to use their creative talents to show us their vision. I’m sure we will be amazed by their imagination, creativity and optimism for our future.”
