Mike Gapes: Aged 18-35? Apply now to British Council’s #FutureLeadersConnect programme

Join the British Council’s Future Leaders Connect – the global network of emerging policy leaders.

The search is on for a new generation of leaders to join impressive individuals from ten other countries for an intensive policy and leadership development programme, including a conference in the UK Houses of Parliament debating some of the world’s biggest challenges. 

Future Leaders Connect, launched this year by the British Council, will offer nine days of leadership learning and development for young people, to provide them with the skills they need to turn innovative ideas into tangible policy recommendations.  

Those taking part will meet some of today’s leading thinkers from public, private, third sector and political worlds. 

Ilford South MP Mike Gapes, said: “We have a long, proud tradition of democratic policy-making in this country and this is a great opportunity for the next generation of leaders to take it forward. The connections these young people will make not only with UK decision makers but also with their counterparts from across the world, will be invaluable to them in their careers.

He added: “I would urge anybody from Ilford who wants to make a difference, have their voice heard and become a great leader, to apply to Future Leaders Connect.”

Anyone who would like to take part needs to submit an online application by 23.59 Thursday 20 July 2017 (BST). They will be asked what their unique policy ideas are and about their experience as a leader. www.britishcouncil.org/future-leaders-connect
