A national interactive youth website has been launched in
Scotland by first minister Jack McConnell this week.
The Scottish executive has supported the £1.4 million
project as part of the OpenScotland.gov initiative, which is being
run by national youth charity Young Scot.
The portal offers information and interactive online facilities,
as well as the opportunity for visitors to engage in online voting
At the launch in Edinburgh, McConnell said: “The youth
information portal is an excellent concept, with real, practical
benefits for young people.
“The information it contains can empower young people to make
better, informed decisions and choices about their life, whether it
is careers, health issues or topical matters of interest to them,”
