Connect to the opportunity to develop skills and create positive change through policy making
Through Future Leaders Connect we aim to identify exceptional individuals (aged 18-35) who have the potential to be future leaders of their countries in the fields of politics and policy, and who will be amongst the shapers of global policy making in the years ahead. If you believe you are an emerging leader with an understanding of global issues and policy making then this could be the opportunity for you.
At the British Council we are committed to developing future leaders. To prepare for the world ahead of us the next generation of leaders must be skilled, innovative and globally connected people, able to make and respond to change with effective policy making.
Future Leaders Connect offers its members the opportunity to be part of a long-term worldwide network of emerging policy leaders. You will have the chance to discuss some of the biggest global policy issues in the Houses of Parliament in London, develop your leadership skills, learn from inspirational policy leaders and make positive policy change in your country and beyond.
