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.

Young people are at the heart of designing, developing and deciding what they want the year to be. The Scottish Government is working with youth partners and the events and tourism sector to deliver activities and experiences for communities across Scotland to enjoy and discover more about our amazing young people.
