On Tuesday 13 November 2018, the ScottishPower Foundation will host its Autumn Lecture at Rockvilla in Glasgow in conjunction with the National Theatre of Scotland. The Lecture will address the future, and how society can support the success of young people in today’s modern and ever-changing world.
2018 sees Scotland celebrate the Year of Young People, a 12-month initiative from the Scottish Government packed full of events, activities and ideas to give young people the opportunity to shine, showcase their talents and contributions, and create new ways to stand out.
As well as talks from key figureheads at the ScottishPower Foundation Ann McKechin and Mike Thornton, the organisers have secured a fantastic line-up of speakers including Eden Clarke, a young carer and recent participant in the Outward Bound Trust’s New Adventures – New Beginnings programme and Jackie Wylie, Artistic Director and Chief Executive at the National Theatre of Scotland, which continues to trail blaze the UK theatre scene in making it accessible for all. The evening address is from Mark Stevenson, an expert in global trends and the National Theatre of Scotland’s resident futurist.

Together, the speakers will offer an insight into Scotland’s future landscape, exploring the dynamics of its economy, its environment, and question how we equip young people to cope and thrive in a changing world.
Information from the evening will be live across ScottishPower’s Twitter channel on the night:
