Event success at Edinburgh Castle.
We launched this special Inspiring Purpose project this year which tied in great with the centenary of the First World War. Just like previous years, we had our WW1 Edition of the poster which was launched so our young people could learn from the history of the war and the different values that would have been needed at such a hard time, as well as for our young people to think about the value of life. Along side this, we had our Between the Generations project. With this, we encouraged a young person and an old family relative or family friend to complete the poster together. Our aim was to bring two generations together and for them to learn from the history of the first world war, as well as from each other. With over 1000 young people across Scotland participating in both of these projects, we seen that we had achieved our goal. We seen a lot of reflections to how times are different now for our young people, as they learned from working with their Senior partner on this project. We hosted a special awards event for this project in the Scottish War Memorial in Edinburgh Castle. Prize winners (including the older generation participants) were presented their prizes by Professor Norman Drummond CBE FRSE. Just like our other projects, seeing the prize winners receiving their prizes and interacting with one another throughout the event, really makes what we do worthwhile.
