London, United Kingdom
On Saturday 16th November 2013, Future Foreign Policy will be launching its new social website at the Thomson Reuters building in Canary Wharf, London - to provide a global voice for young people on international affairs.
With this in mind, our event will allow the policy ideas of students, recent alumni and young professionals to be presented and debated alongside industry experts in our keynote sessions. This will also involve panel discussions and debates on hot topics in foreign affairs including Cyber Security, Counter-Terrorism, the UK in the EU, Military Interventions, Future Trends in Foreign Policy, and a Careers in Foreign Policy section to give you an insight into your professional options in the field.
You can now see the agenda for the day here.
With high profile speakers from some of the UK’s most prominent international affairs think tanks and organisations, including the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Cabinet Office, and Chatham House, we are providing a platform for the future, to give the first real voice to young people in the UK on international affairs.
Food and drinks are included all day. For discounted tickets and student tickets, email email@example.com for more information.
At this event we are offering the opportunity for bright young minds to present and debate your own Foreign Policy ideas alongside high profile industry professionals from major foreign policy think tanks in the UK, innovative new digital organisations and decision makers in the field.
For the chance to pitch your ideas on the day in one of our keynote sessions, we are encouraging all students and recent alumni from Universities across the UK – to submit a 500-word pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org on one of the following topics:
- In your opinion, what is currently the biggest problem/challenge in International Relations and what could the solution be in the next 5 years?
- What should the top three foreign policy priorities be for the UK? This could be a region, cause or action.
Your pitches will be judged by industry professionals on our advisory body, from Chatham House, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue and a number of other high profile foreign policy think tanks, on its clarity, innovation, and relevance. If chosen, you will be able to present your pitch to leading industry professionals and policymakers during keynote sessions on the day.
So put your thinking caps on and get your papers over to us by October 21st. If you apply and submit a pitch to us you will receive a discounted ticket to the launch event, and if chosen to pitch on the day you will receive a free ticket.
Our vision is to breathe fresh thinking into the Foreign Affairs Industry, to offer an unheard voice - the voice of the next generation, and we hope you will join us in what will be a flagship day for our organisation and the future of policy making in the UK.
