Future Leaders Connect is a global network of emerging policy leaders from around the world. Selected young leaders travel to the UK for nine days of advanced policy and leadership development, in partnership with the University of Cambridge and the UK Houses of Parliament. Following the UK leadership seminars, leaders will have worldwide connections, a policy action plan for change and the skills, knowledge and networks needed to be an influential leader in their country and beyond.
