Society and Cultures
Engagement between the UK and other countries depends on a mutual understanding of values. Our work connects local issues to global themes and ranges from social action to diversity and youth issues.
We’ve chosen three winners from our 100 Questions About Islam blogging contest, which we’ve been publishing throughout this week. Our last winning entry is from Olivia Grace Newman, a student in psychology at the University of Houston-Victoria.
Global Changemakers was founded in 2007 when six young activists, brought together by the British Council, were invited to lend the ‘voice of youth’ to the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum. Since then, the network has grown to a community of over 730 Changemakers in 121 countries world-wide.
