Your Thoughts Welcome on an Updated Digital Strategy for Scotland

Your Thoughts Welcome on an Updated Digital Strategy for Scotland

The Scottish Government is looking for your thoughts and contributions as it prepares an update of the National Digital Strategy for 2017 and beyond.

Ideas and contributions are being sought in six main areas: Connectivity, Economy, Skills, Public Services, Participation and Cyber Security.

Your contribution is welcome through the ideas.gov.scot platform.

The current Scottish Government Digital Strategy was published in 2011. It outlined the steps to be taken to “ensure that Scotland was well positioned to take full advantage of all the economic, social and environmental opportunities offered by the digital age”, especially in four main areas – public service delivery, the digital economy, digital participation and broadband connectivity.

The underlying vision was for Scotland to be a world-class digital nation by 2020.

Is this still a realistic objective given the rapid pace of digital change that has taken place since 2011?

What key actions and initiatives do we need to implement in order to become a world class digital nation?

The closing date for contributing your suggestions for the new strategy is 24 November, with the strategy itself being published early next year.
