Denton and Reddish MP, Andrew Gwynne has given his backing to British Councils Future Leaders Connect programme, and has urged young people across the Denton and Reddish constituency.
The British Council is looking for exceptional young people aged 18-35 to join a long-term global network of emerging policy leaders. Members of Future Leaders Connect will develop leadership skills, learn from global policy experts, meet with MP’s in the UK Houses of Parliament and attend private meetings with inspirational leaders.
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.
Anyone who would like to take part needs to submit an online application by midnight on 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
Andrew Gwynne 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.
“I would urge anybody from across Audenshaw, Denton, Dukinfield, Reddish, Heaton Chapel, Heaton Norris and Haughton Green who wants to make a difference, have their voice heard and become a great leader, to apply to Future Leaders Connect.”
