Year of Young People 2018

Year of Young People (YOYP) 2018 is an opportunity to celebrate the amazing personalities and talents that make up Scotland.

It’s about inspiring the nation through its young people’s ideas, attitudes and ambitions.

In East Lothian, we are looking to showcase the many achievements of our young people throughout 2018. Whether it’s in sport, the arts, education or the workplace, young people in East Lothian are renowned for success and innovation.

A number of events will be taking place across the county – look out for more information throughout the year.

We will also be highlighting the ways in which East Lothian Council supports our young people, recognising their role in helping to achieve our vision of an even more prosperous, safe and sustainable East Lothian.

The key themes of YOYP are:

Participation – looking at how young people can influence public services and decisions which affect their lives

Education – creating a stronger role for young people in shaping their learning

Health and Wellbeing –supporting young people to lead healthier, active lives and have opportunities to learn about and improve their mental health and resilience

Equality and Discrimination – broadcasting the value of young Scots, challenging negative perceptions of young people, and supporting young people to take leading roles in challenging discrimination in all its forms
