What is Future News Worldwide?

Future News Worldwide is a partnership programme between the British Council and some of the world's leading media organisations. The aim is to support young people to develop a wide range of journalism skills and to establish the UK as a global leader in the nurturing of young journalists and media figures.

Each year we bring together 100 of the world's most talented, motivated and passionate student journalists to attend an intensive media training programme. Participants receive exclusive coaching from world-leading editors, broadcasters, writers and reporters, and see how publishers around the world are using technology to find stories and bring them to life like never before.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Future News Worldwide conference went online in 2020 and we are currently working on the programme for 2021.

Applications for this year's digital conference will open at the end of April.
