The British Council creates international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries, and builds trust between them worldwide. It calls this work ‘cultural relations.’ The organisation works in over 100 countries, connecting millions of people with the United Kingdom through programmes and services in the English language, the Arts, Education and Society. The British Council believes these are the most effective means of engaging with others, and has been doing this work since 1934. Its work in Education and Society helps transform national education systems, builds more inclusive and open societies and increases young people’s opportunities.
The British Council is hosting the global Future of Education discussions.
