Future Leaders Connect

Future Leaders Connect

The Future Leaders Connect Programme aims to provide future leaders with skills and international networks which will improve their ability to make or influence policy changes, leading to long term impact on the social and economic development in their countries and beyond. The Programme is run by the British Council.




20 Jul 2017


Approximately 50 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 real impact.
- 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 they make through Future Leaders Connect will support them to seize their leadership potential.

Participants will come to the UK for approximately nine days between 18-27 October 2017, and stay in Cambridge and London. The conference will be held in the Houses of Parliament.
