Launch of the Franco-British Young Leaders Initiative

Launched in 2016 by David Cameron and Francois Hollande at the March 2016 Franco-British Summit, the Franco-British Young Leaders makes its debut in 2017.

We are proud to announce the launch of the 2017 Franco-British Young Leaders Initiative, a project coordinated by the Franco-British Council and supported by the Franco-British Connections.

Each year, 30 to 40 French and British talented and individuals will be selected within the business, cultural, media, academic, social, government and military sectors. They will join a transformational network, access areas of excellence on both sides of the Channel and be encouraged to implement learning into their practice.

The programme aims to deepen Franco-British understanding and collaboration at the highest level and establishes a give back/give forward ethos at its core.

Applications close on 1 March 2017. To download the full programme click here. To apply click here.
