During this uncertain time, our customers and partners’ health is our priority. In many countries, we have temporarily paused programme activity in response to government and health authority guidance.

As a result, we won’t be running the Future Leaders Connect programme this year.

Don’t worry, you can still get involved with Future Leaders Connect by signing up to our digital community to access free policy and leadership resources. We will also be running our highly-popular online course, Ideas for a Better World: Leading Change through Policymaking within the next few months. Check the Future Leaders Connect website or sign up for the latest updates
