Youth Forum

Share, celebrate and advocate with Scotland's Urban Past

Applications are now open!

You can join via our Survey Monkey

Love towns and cities? Love history and heritage? Then sign up to join the Youth Forum 2018/9 for Scotland’s Urban Past.

The forum will give you the opportunity to create an event that celebrates the heritage of place, get trained up on skills you might not already have, and meet other people who love urban history. 

Anyone living in Scotland who is between the ages 16-25 is welcome to apply. No background skills are necessary, just a passion for the past and a willingness to learn new things. 

Applications close 5th July 2018  


An event created, developed and put on by you

This year, you’ll get to design and run your very own part of ‘Knight at the Castle’ - a massive after hours event based at Edinburgh Castle this October.

You’ll get help from the Scotland’s Urban Past team through training on event design, management and anything else that you think would increase your skills and improve your event.

 We’ll even lend a hand on the day! 


Get involved!

You’ll have the chance to join in on SUP projects running across Scotland, attend and help deliver our events, and learn new skills to feed into your interests. 

We want your perspective on what we do, how we do it and the heritage that matters to young people today! Come share, celebrate and advocate with Scotland's Urban Past.

Check out our Project and Resources pages to learn more about what we do.
