The Year of Young People 2018 will celebrate the amazing young personalities, talents, and achievers that make up Scotland. Led by the Scottish Government, the year will also aim to inspire our nation through its young people’s ideas, attitudes and ambitions.
Earlier this year, the YOYP 2018 website and logo were both launched. A national search for young Ambassadors for Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 (managed by Young Scot, Children in Scotland and Scottish Youth Parliament) was also launched to recruit around 200 young people (between 8-26 years old) throughout Scotland. Click here for more information – the deadline for applications is Thursday 15 June 2017.
2018 also provides a unique opportunity to develop a celebratory events programme that puts young people at the centre of its development and delivery, creating new and valuable experiences for young Scots and their families and visitors. EventScotland, part of VisitScotland’s Events Directorate is welcoming proposals for both new and existing events taking place in Scotland during 2018. The deadline for applications is Monday 12 June 2017 at 12pm (for events taking place 1 January – 31 December 2018).
