On 20th February, the Scotland Malawi Partnership's Youth Congress 2018 welcomed over 300 S3 to S6 students and their teachers from across Scotland to Hampden Park to kick off a year packed full of events for the Year of Young People 2018, in partnership with our youth members.
The theme was 'Partnership in action - My views, my voice'. The day included interactive workshops that focused on deepening understanding and developing skills. This was followed by networking between schools and where we heard more about the Malawi links across Scotland. Finally students were encouraged to 'interview the experts' where they investigated the successes and challenges the relationship between Scotland and Malawi may face in the future.
You can see all the action from the day shared by students, teachers, volunteers and staff by finding us on social media and following our hashtags #SMPYouthCongress #YOYP2018!
