Our ambitions

Since April 2019, stakeholders have been feeding into discussions around internationalism. Ambitions around the theme of Children and Young People are:

Getting to the heart of the matter

From February 2020 we have been working with City of Dreams and their Young Champions to explore what internationalism means to children and young people in the city, their ambitions for the future and how our partnership can support them.

We hope to engage a wide range of children and young people in exploring identity, tolerance, diversity, cultures within the context of internationalism.

A hub of information

Stakeholders have told us that they would like to have information in one place so they can explore what internationalism in the city means, what is happening and who they can get in touch with or link to.

This is a start of creating a hub and do get in touch if you have information or news to share.
