Active Citizens, the British Council's social leadership training programme aims to promote intercultural dialogue and community-led social development, by working with participants aged 18 and over.
Active Citizens is open to a range of organisations, including grassroots and religious groups, sports teams, businesses, education providers, charities, youth organisations, arts organisations and social entrepreneurs.
We want to help Northern Ireland organisations to connect with the programme. By bringing together people from different cultures, beliefs and perspectives, we can provide more opportunities to learn, share stories, and ultimately create a fairer, more inclusive Northern Ireland.
