Scotland’s first ever Year of Young People is happening in 2018.
It aims to inspire all ages through its young people (8-26) by celebrating their achievements, valuing their contributions to communities and creating new opportunities for them to shine on a local and global stage. 2018 builds on the success of Scotland’s previous Themed Years which have celebrated everything from the country’s food and drink, natural landscapes innovation, architecture and design through to its history, heritage and creativity.
The Year of Young People 2018 will offer even more opportunities for both locals and visitors to enjoy a trip to, and around Scotland. From adventure breaks to road trips, camping holidays to family-friendly days out, there is a range of fantastic things to see and do for young people and their families to enjoy. A year-long programme of events and activities will also give young people in Scotland the opportunity to show the world what they are made of.
