Join discussions with UK Youth and British Council about international and intercultural opportunities! 

British Council is working with UK Youth to understand how they can open up access to international opportunities and better understand what you think the value of international and intercultural opportunities are as well as the barriers to them.

Instead of a coffee shop, you’ll be in the comfort of your home on Zoom with a coffee or tea in hand. During the workshop, you will be able to share your own perspectives about internationalism in its various forms, such as language learning, travelling abroad, communicating with young people from other countries, overall, virtual and offline international experiences.

Breakout room discussions will be centred around the following questions:

  • What is internationalism?
  • How can we create international experiences or connections?
  • Are there benefits to having international experiences or connections?
  • What are the barriers/enabling factors to young people exploring international experiences?

What you need to know...

  • Thursday 26th November 6 – 7pm
  • Focus group will be taking place on Zoom for 1 hour.
  • We will use breakout rooms so people feel comfortable to contribute.
  • It is open to all, we want young people who haven’t had the opportunity for international experience and those who have.
  • Each young person who attends will be emailed a £15 voucher via One4All for that can be used across lots of online and physical shops.

Register in advance for this meeting.
