The Generation 9/11 video project was Our Shared Future’s contribution to public discourse on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the US. The impact of the attacks resounded worldwide as a profoundly cultural event. Ten years after this important event, we invited members of the British Council’s Transatlantic Network 2020 (TN2020) of young professionals and leaders from around the world to contribute their perspective and reaction to 9/11 as they developed into adults.

100 Questions about Islam
The British Council partnered with the UN Alliance of Civilizations and the University of Missouri School of Journalism to take advantage of the presence of so many experts at a conference at Georgetown University in Spring 2011. Selected experts were interviewed on camera by University of Missouri students on some very basic questions at the heart of relations between Muslims and non-Muslims – about Islam and Muslims in the US, Europe, and Middle East. These answers were then edited into a video series called 100 Questions about Islam.

Journeys of Belonging
The world is not divided into ‘us’ and ‘them’
Journeys of Belonging challenges the ‘us vs. them’ dichotomy through a range of video testimonies by public figures and young leaders about the many facets of their identity and the shared experiences that unite them. In a hyper-connected society, we have ever-increasing opportunities to see that people across continents often share similar views, aspirations, and hopes.
We partnered with the UN Alliance of Civilizations and the University of Missouri School of Journalism to create a video series of experts examining this dichotomy.
Check out the names of the experts in these videos below. You can find all of the videos on YouTube.
