“We are sponsoring the BYA awards as we are strongly committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion and can see the benefits of supporting a youth award which drives and inspires young people to engage with difference. As the UK’s principle cultural relations organisation, our work is centred on building meaningful, enduring and respectful relationships across different cultures.”
The British Council creates international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries, and we build trust between them worldwide. We call this cultural relations.
We work 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. We believe these are the most effective means of engaging with others, and we have been doing this work since 1934.
