International Newcastle is leading the development of the first city-wide Internationalism Alliance. We are engaging young people and partners across the city, region and UK to support the development of our alliance.
We will explore how to increase agency, access and opportunities for children and young people to have international and intercultural experiences.
We will work with existing and new partners to develop and enhance international links, as well as exploring sustainable ways to maintain and deepen links.
