This event is a celebration of 2018, Scotland’s national ‘Year of Young People’ and will provide a platform for young people to discuss how successful political engagement has been achieved this year, through the promotion of young voices in influential circles. This event will also provide a way of presenting their thoughts on topics important to them and their future, such as enterprise, climate and diversity. It will offer young people from a variety of European organisations the opportunity to influence decisions that affect their lives by engaging with policy makers, influencers and Ministers.

Young Scot is the national youth information and citizenship charity. They provide young people, aged 11 - 26, with a mixture of information, ideas and incentives to help them become confident, informed and active citizens. They do this in a variety of formats, including online, social, apps, magazines, and phone, etc, so young people can access information in a way they are comfortable with.

Year of Young People 2018 is an opportunity for generations to come together and celebrate Scotland’s young people. It is a platform for Scotland's young people (8 to 26). It will give them a stronger voice on issues which affect their lives, showcase their ideas and talents, and ultimately, aim to challenge status quo and create a more positive perception of them in society.
