The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. Using the UK’s cultural resources, we make a positive contribution to the countries we work with– changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust. We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Each year we reach over 20 million people face-to-face and more than 500 million people online, via broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body.

Active Citizens is a social leadership training programme that promotes intercultural dialogue and community-led social development. Through the programme, we bring together people with different beliefs and perspectives to learn from and share with each other. Working with our partners around the globe, we train participants in the skills and knowledge needed to affect social change in their communities. Active Citizens connects thousands of like-minded people around the world who collectively want to make a fairer and more inclusive society.

Active Citizens promotes community-led social development through building trust within and between communities and across key stakeholders. It motivates community members to take responsibility for their social needs whilst giving them the knowledge, skills, experience and networks to address them. Trust, understanding and sustainable development is achieved through:

  • Improving the ability of individuals to express and negotiate their identities in an increasingly connected world.
  • Improving the ability of individuals to meet their needs and those of their communities whilst recognising and valuing the needs of others.
  • Building trust within and between communities.
