This year Young People are at the centre of the Festival of Politics. In this 'Year of Creative Scotland 2012', the General Teaching Council for Scotland brings together a panel of key people to discuss what inspires and promotes creativity and how we should support and encourage our young people to play their part in the creativity and culture of this country. Other events will explore The importance of Reading to Children and Society;
young people's participation in sport and children's rights. A Young Persons' Band Night
will offer a programme of up and coming Scottish talent. Two hundred Young People from across Scotland will join us for a day of discussion and debate about the issues that are important to them.
