Year of Young People Youth Urban Games Event

Year of Young People Youth Urban Games Event

On 25th August 2018, the Youth Urban Games took place in North Glasgow. International Parkour, BMX and Skateboard athletes showcased their skills, and local young people got the chance to have a go - all celebrating the area's reputation as an 'urban playground'

Hosted by Scottish Canals with support from SportInspired, Glasgow City Council, and Glasgow Life, the free-to-watch event put Scotland's young people in the spotlight, celebrating their talents, contributions and creating new opportunities for them to shine.

The Youth Urban Games (YUG 2018) was supported by the Year of Young People 2018 event fund, managed by EventScotland, part of VisitScotland's Events Directorate.
