Future Leaders Connect is where exceptional young people from around the world will join a long-term network of emerging policy leaders. They will develop their policy-making expertise, make valuable connections and gain the skills to have a real impact. Together they will discuss major global policy issues in the Houses of Parliament, engage with inspiring leaders, visit some of the UK’s leading global institutions and collaborate to produce innovative policy recommendations. Countries currently involved in the programme include Canada, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Poland, Tunisia, UK and USA.
This year, over 6,000 applications were received from Nigeria. And 11 finalists have been shortlisted who will be pitching their ideas and policy vision before a panel of judges and a room of engaging audience. Five winners will be selected. These will go on to the UK in October this year for advanced leadership training.
