Scotlandhour January 2018 – Celebrating Year of the Young People

2018 is the Year of the Young People celebrating the opportunity for young people to showcase their talents with 12 months of great events and activities.  Scotlandhour are really looking forward to this year and look forward to celebrating all year but in particular we thought it was the perfect way to start the year and celebrate Year of the Young People for our January theme.  We are delighted to be working with co-hosts @amympeters , @suexman, @youthtraveledin this month.  We asked Amy what the Year of the Young People means for her:

“The Year of Young People 2018 (YoYP) presents an opportunity for everyone to celebrate the amazing young personalities, talents and achievers that make a massive contribution to Scotland. At its heart, the year is about inspiring our nation through its young people’s ideas, attitudes and aspirations.

As one of over 500 national YoYP ambassadors, I’m looking forward to getting out into my local community to spread the word about the Year of Young People. Young people are truly amazing, and this themed year has the power to change misconceptions and remind young people how incredibly valued they are in our country.” 

Here are this month’s questions to allow you to get ready and we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 31st January 9-10pm!
