What is the Internationalism Alliance?

Our pledge 

We want to offer every child and young person in the United Kingdom, whatever their background or interests, the opportunity to learn from – and connect with – other people in the UK and around the world.

The UK’s future will be shaped by our international links and the way we work with partners to tackle the challenges facing us all. 

We pledge to do what we can to give our young people the understanding, skills and confidence to make those connections for themselves – to enrich their lives and the lives of everyone in the UK. 

Join the Internationalism Alliance

Young people and partners in the UK can join the Internationalism Alliance. 

Partners will be part of a community of organisations working with young people, including British Council. We want to make real change through our work and collaboration.

As a member, you can

  • identify priorities and work towards shared goals with other members
  • participate in regular, themed workshops and meetings
  • be part of advocacy campaigns to influence leaders and decision-makers to increase opportunities for young people
  • celebrate each other’s successes
  • ensure young people’s voices are always part of our thinking.

The Internationalism Alliance will

  • champion international and intercultural experiences for children and young people
  • advocate for increased opportunities for international learning
  • build resources to support high-quality international experiences.
