British Council Scotland and Young Scot have launched GlobeScotters, a new digital campaign for Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018.
In a world that is becoming ever more interconnected and interdependent, it is important that young people are supported to equip themselves with the skills they need to succeed and contribute.
That's why we've partnered with Young Scot, Scotland's national youth information and citizenship agency, to share a positive message around international experience and opportunities.
Over the next six months, GlobeScotters content will encourage young people in Scotland to embrace international and inter-cultural experiences at home and abroad.
The aim is to inspire a global outlook among the next generation to help enrich their lives, improve their education and employment prospects, and make new cultural connections.
Content will cover a range of topics - from fun ways of learning languages and taking part in new cultural experiences, to prizes and opportunities on Young Scot Rewards.
GlobeScotters will also offer valuable information on visiting, moving, studying, volunteering and working abroad.
Covering three themes - soft skills, education and careers - the campaign is informed by British Council research on how:
- international opportunities benefit individuals and employers, and support UK prosperity;
- the UK’s decision to leave the EU has left many young people feeling uncertain about the future.
