British Council calls applications for Future News Worldwide Program 2021. Future News Worldwide identifies, trains, and connects the next generation of global journalists. It is a partnership program between the British Council and some of the world’s leading media organizations.

The aim is to support young people to develop a wide range of journalism skills and to establish the UK as a global leader in the nurturing of young journalists and media figures. The conference is being held online and offers aspiring young journalists from across the globe the opportunity to develop practical and editorial skills and hear directly from some of the world’s most high-profile industry leaders.
