Your chance to connect to a long-term network of emerging leaders from around the globe, who want to change the world through policy making.
Future Leaders Connect is where exceptional young people from around the world join a long-term network of emerging policy leaders. You will develop your policy making expertise, make valuable connections and gain the skills to have real impact. Together you 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. The skills, experience and connections you will make through Future Leaders Connect will support you to seize your leadership potential.
Anyone who would like to take part must submit an application online before Sunday 30 April 2017 (23.59 UK time). They will be asked what their unique policy ideas are and why they have what it takes to be a global leader. www.britishcouncil.org/future-leaders-connect

We are looking for exceptional individuals with the ideas, energy and commitment to work collaboratively with all members of Future Leaders Connect and with senior global leaders. You must also be able to travel to the UK between 18 to 27 October 2017.
