June news | Why are young people important to tourism?

You'll be familiar that 2018 represents Scotland's Year of Young People (YOYP) which aims to inspire all ages through its young people by celebrating their achievements, valuing their contributions to communities and creating new opportunities for them to shine on a local and global stage.

But why are young people important to tourism? Well, put simply, they're the lifeblood of the industry across all areas and the decision makers of tomorrow, but we shouldn't forget or overlook those that don’t fall into the 8-26 years category. All generations can work together effectively to learn from each other.

Celebrations for the Year have already seen a range of fantastic events taking place and working alongside event organisers across the country, the nation’s young people have been hard at work to co-design a vibrant programme of events and festivals.

The first ever TEDxYouth@Glasgow inspired young attendees to step out of their comfort zone, explore new revolutionary ideas and discover their full potential both behind the scenes and for those in the audience. Our very own Year of Young People Ambassador, Rachel Woods from our customer experience team was part of the five star line-up at TEDxGlasgow on 1 June.

We can truly be proud of our young people’s achievements and their valuable contributions in putting Scotland at the top of everyone's NOW list. #ScotlandIsNow.
