Foreign Policy Hackaton: Future United
Our partner Future Foreign Policy launched a new policy competition, Future United, on rethinking post-Brexit UK policy in three policy areas: trade, security and democracy. Participation is open to anyone UK-based under 30.
After the seismic political events of 2016, the United Kingdom's role in the world is shifting. Fresh thinking – and a voice for youth – is needed more than ever.
Now, Future Foreign Policy, the first International Affairs Think Tank dedicated to giving young people a credible voice on the global stage, is pleased to announce the launch of our national policy hacking competition, Future United. Future United will bring together young people from across the UK, connecting them with decision makers, technologists, innovators, social entrepreneurs and industry experts to discuss and examine a credible vision of the UK's future place in the world.
Unlike other policy competitions, Future United aims to not just generate new ideas but, by facilitating cross-sector collaboration, to kickstart action with concrete strategies for government, business, civil society and other institutions.
In a series of workshops and events throughout the year, Future Foreign Policy will bring young people with together with a range of experts to develop new policy ideas across three themes, Future Trade, Future Security and Future Democracy.
These themes have been selected on the basis of their prominence in the debate surrounding the UK's future relationships with the world.
