Future Leaders Connect - the global network for emerging policy leaders
Future Leaders Connect is a long-term programme to build a community of emerging leaders from around the world who have big ideas and want to change the world through policy making.
Through Future Leaders Connect, we will support a network of exceptional young people (aged 18-35) to develop their policy making and leadership expertise, and help them to make valuable global connections. We hope that the skills they learn will help them to tackle the challenges they face in their regions, and make a positive impact.
Sir Ciarán Devane, the Chief Executive of the British Council, said:
An international outlook is vital for the future leaders of all countries, if they wish to overcome the challenges they will face. Through Future Leaders Connect the British Council will help a new generation to understand practical policy development by putting them in contact with the leaders of today. The programme will help them to develop the skills and international contacts they need to make positive change in their countries.
