Year of Young People 2018
The Youth Panel is supported by the Year of Young People 2018 event fund, managed by EventScotland, part of VisitScotland’s Event Directorate. 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. 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 adrenaline filled adventure breaks and breath-taking road trips, to a range of exciting events and festivals, Scotland offers endless things to see and do during the celebratory year.
Meet some of the Youth Panel and find out what they have been up to in the Youth Panel Blog!
