From climate change and conflict, to new technologies and activism, explore the forces that are shaping the world today and discover how young people have a voice to influence the future.
Launching as a pilot programme in 2021 in partnership with Chatham House, this new Saturday Club will look at how globally-connected our daily lives are; how countries work together to deal with international issues like climate change; pandemics; conflict and war; the role of international companies; and the direction of new technologies.
Club members will find out about different cultures and life in other countries, including what it is like to be a young person in other parts of the world, and will also be introduced to a range of jobs and careers from foreign policy and diplomacy to journalistic reporting and international charity work.
It’s shown me so much more than I knew was out there.
