Year of Young People 2018

In the Year of Young People 2018, Scotland puts its young people (8-26) in the spotlight. It aims to inspire all ages through our young people, celebrating their talents, valuing their contributions 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. 

Year of Young People 2018 is led by the Scottish Government, working in collaboration with the core group of delivery partners including VisitScotland, EventScotland, Young Scot, Children in Scotland, Scottish Youth Parliament, Creative Scotland and YouthLink Scotland.
