Young Scot     

Year of Young People 2018 was an opportunity for generations to come together and celebrate our nation’s young people. It was a platform for our young people (8 to 26) to give them a stronger voice on issues which affect their lives, showcase their ideas and talents, and ultimately, challenge status quo and create a more positive perception of them in society. Through a co-design process, young people decided that the year should aim to: *Provide a platform for young people to have their views heard and acted upon *Showcase the amazing talents of young people through events and media *Develop better understanding, co-operation and respect between generations *Recognise the impact of teachers, youth workers and other supporting adults on young people’s lives *Provide opportunities for young people to express themselves through culture, sport and other activities
