Members and delegates of the STUC Youth Conference have been honoured at a Civic Reception.
The conference was held for members to elect a new committee, as well as discuss the issues facing young people in Scotland.
And Depute Provost Karen Conaghan was delighted to host a Civic Reception after the event at Clydebank’s Golden Jubilee Hotel on June 30.
It was the 78th annual conference, and had a theme of ‘Controlling the Future’.
Delegates had the opportunity to hear from key speakers including STUC president Lynn Henderson, as well as workshops and panels about employability and protection at work.
Depute Provost Conaghan said: “It was great to meet with delegates and members at the STUC Youth Conference.
“They do an important job because they are the collective voice for young people, standing up for their peers on important issues and offering insight to the wider work of the STUC.
“I was delighted to be able to extend my thanks for the work they are doing and to be able to reassure them that young people will remain at the forefront of the Council’s decision making.”
