Shaping Horizon Summit 2019 at University of Cambridge first international summit and action programme on science, policy and innovation for a changing world, gathering 150 young leaders from across the UK and Latin America to engage with senior world leaders and ignite change.

All Future Leaders attend the Summit at the University of Cambridge for a registration fee of 150 GBP which covers accommodation and food during all organized events of the Summit. Future Leaders are expected to cover their travel to Cambridge themselves. However, in the case of financial need, a very limited amount of scholarships will be made available for a select number of delegates to waive the fee and/or cover flights. Successful applicants are strongly encouraged to search for external sponsors and will be provided material for doing so.

Why Join?

As a Future Leader taking part in Shaping Horizons, you will help create evidence-based policy reports for governments on issues covered at the summit. Furthermore, you will design and pitch a project within the themes of Shaping Horizons which can be implemented by young leaders in both regions under mentorship by Cambridge academics and Shaping Horizons partners. Finally, you will become a part of a bilateral network of leaders tackling some of the most pressing problems facing the UK and Latin America.

After the summit and as a part of the action programme, Future Leaders will continue to develop their projects and implement them upon the return to their home cities. The projects that prove traction are eligible to receive further mentorship and economic support if the Future Leaders involved wish to scale up their solution.


To be eligible to apply, you must

  • be 18 years old at the time of applying and not yet have turned 33 on the first day of the summit
  • have a strong connection to Latin America or the UK through citizenship and/or through significant residency in the region
  • be a young leader in your field

How to Apply

The application form consists of a series of questions about why you should be considered a Future Leader, and what insights you have into the themes of Shaping Horizons. You will also be required to submit an up to a 90-second video about how you see the connection between science, policy, and innovation. Applications for Future Leaders close April 14th at 23:59 GMT.
