The event is open to teachers, pupils aged 14+, and young people from across Scotland.

Attendees will choose from a selection of workshops and interactive sessions in the morning or afternoon on topics including language and culture, global citizenship, music, and many others. There will be bespoke sessions for teachers as well, with experts in school trips and group travel to Malawi on hand to offer advice and their experience.

Here’s an outline of how the day will look (times could change but we’ll keep you in the loop if they do):

9.30am – Registration for early session

10am-12.15pm – Workshops/activities

12.15pm-1.15pm – Lunch for early session (attendees will need to bring a packed lunch)/registration for late session

1.15pm-2.45pm – Plenary session for *all* attendees

2.45pm-5pm – Workshops/activities for late session

Co-designed with our Youth Committee, the event really will be led by young people from across Scotland, celebrating the heritage and culture of the two countries and their partnership.

So sign up today! Group bookings are encouraged, places are free but limited so we recommend booking early!
