Year of young people
Ever since 2013 when Scotland’s former First Minister Alex Salmond announced that 2018 would be the Year of Young People, there has been a renewed enthusiasm for celebrating and promoting young peoples’ role in culture, education, business and wellbeing. Year of Young People 2018 aims to inspire Scotland through its young people, celebrating their achievements, valuing their contribution to communities and creating new opportunities for them to shine locally, nationally and globally. Taking these values aboard, organisations on Arran have long championed the cause of young people and involved them in the heart of everything that they do.
