Scotland’s Big Challenges

This project is possible thanks to funding provided by Scotland’s Future Series and the Director of Eden Campus Geoff Morris.

We’re discovering issues which matter to our students and which will affect Scotland now and in the future.

Our Plan

As a group, including internal and external stakeholders, we are discussing and coming up with ways that we, in St Andrews can play our part in addressing these issues, whether through teaching or any other aspect of university life.

Find out what we mean by ‘Big Challenges’ and why they’re important to our students.

As a group we are working through the following stages

Identifying the issues and presenting them for discussion

Connecting with collaborators and relevant stakeholders in the context of your challenge

Developing a solution which can be actioned by us together at the University of St Andrews
