    Damien Moore MP is urging young people in Southport who are interested in leadership and making a difference, to apply for an international scheme run by the British Council.

    Future Leaders Connect, a programme run by the British Council, the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, is open to all young people aged 18-35 and will see ten representatives from the UK join 40 others from eleven different countries.

    Successful applicants will be invited to take part in public events, pitching the policy ideas they feel could change the world for the better and discussing today’s biggest global challenges.

    MP Damien Moore said: “This is an invaluable opportunity for a motivated young person to meet similar high-achievers from around the world who are all united by their desire to make things better in their societies and beyond.

    “It’s open to anybody who has an idea they think could make the world a better place – and it will give them the practical skills and networks to help pursue it.”

    This year’s applicants will be asked what their unique policy ideas are and why they have what it takes to be a global leader.

    Applications must be submitted online before Sunday 13 May 2018 23.59 (UK time). www.britishcouncil.org/future-leaders-connect

    Thirty candidates will be shortlisted from across the UK and two finalists from each region will be awarded a place as a Future Leaders Connect member.

    They will join finalists from eleven other countries for a nine-day programme in October which will include training in public speaking, policy development expertise and leadership skills. This will culminate with several senior meetings in the Houses of Parliament, meeting MPs and law makers.

    Candidates will also be chosen to represent Canada, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Tunisia, USA, plus England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

    Sir Ciarán Devane, the Chief Executive of the British Council, said: “We are looking for high achieving, motivated candidates to join our growing network of future leaders.

    “Through Future Leaders Connect we hope to gather the next generation of world leaders and help them understand the practical nature of policy-making, unravel the mysteries of leadership and develop friendships and contacts with counterparts around the world.”

    Future Leaders Connect is a long-term project to create a community of emerging leaders from around the world who have spent time in the UK developing their capacity to be effective policy leaders, and have a connection with the UK’s culture and institutions.

    British Council research (Trust Pays ) has found that: “Those who have had involvement in cultural relations – arts, education and English language activities – with the UK have great trust in people from the UK.”

    Further research by the British Council’s Higher Education Policy Unit found 55 current world leaders, covering one in four countries, were educated in the UK.

    Oh you've really swallowed the Tory sh*te I hope it was tasty, you'll have your wish when they gerrymander the Constituency borders to ensure Tory Vindictiveness is ensured for decades to come. Why don't you go out and kick a few disabled people whilst you are in the mood.
    People like you having the vote is a dangerous thing but come the Revolution you'll be first against the wall Comrade.

    The boundary changes are being made so that each MP represents the same number of people in their respective constituencies. Currently some MP's are elected more easily because it takes them fewer votes to be "first past the post" as compared to a constituency next door. Stick to the facts rather than just moaning and being unpleasant.

    Voting system should be changed to 50% + 1 to determine elected MP.

    This scheme is badly needed judging by the poor standard of those currently elected.
