Welcome to Edinburgh

Why Edinburgh?

Edinburgh seamlessly blends old and new. With iconic landmarks and attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat, the Royal Mile, galleries and museums, and a vibrant nightlife, it is the perfect destination to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of a diverse city.

Additionally, the Scottish capital has an especially youthful feel as Scotland celebrates the 2018 Year of Young People. The celebration is intended to inspire the country, and the world, through the achievements and contributions of youth. 

The World Youth and Student Conference (WYSTC) will take place in Edinburgh, Scotland on 18-21 September 2018. Here is some useful information to help you organise your trip.
