This St Andrew's Day, help us celebrate Scotland's positive impact across the world and the people that make it possible.



On Wednesday 30 November, we will celebrate St Andrew’s Day by bringing to life the brilliant and far-reaching work done internationally by Scots and anyone connected to Scotland, through content shared on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #GlobalStAndrews.

Staff in the UK Government’s international embassies together with our armed forces and humanitarian workers will be part of this global celebration and we’d love you to join in.
