"The best way to predict the future is to create it"

Abraham Lincoln

19th of April to 9th of May


Scotland has an ambition of building a world-leading entrepreneurial nation, a place where sustainable growth and innovation deliver benefits to all of society. Our ecosystem is recognised as one of the most ambitious in the world and as a small country, we believe we have the opportunity to pilot a new model for the economy.

We are co-creating this Festival to gather the people who can help us bring this model to life, accelerate system change and deliver improved economic, environmental and social value.

This is an invitation to enterprising citizens, businesses and organisations from across the world to join with us, to make this vision a reality.


5.295 million people in and around 6 dynamic cities surrounded by 10,250 miles of coastline and 790 offshore islands. Welcome to Scotland and some of the breathtaking places that inspire us that you will visit in CAN DO Fest:
