Canning House invites all current Latin American scholars on the FCDO's Chevening programme to this virtual discussion of the Canning Agenda, gathering perspectives from the region's next generation of leaders.
Latin America Chevening event:
The Canning Agenda
in partnership with Chevening and the FCDO
Please note: this event is open only to Latin American Chevening Scholars.
Canning House, in partnership with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's Chevening Programme, is pleased to invite the current cohort of Latin American Chevening Scholars to discuss the Canning Agenda.
10 years after the official launch of the Canning Agenda by William Hague, then Foreign Secretary, at Canning House, the Canning Agenda remains the definitive road map for strengthening the UK’s engagement with Latin America. It enshrines the UK’s commitment to a greater presence in the region and to developing this time-honoured relationship into broader and deeper ties across all aspects of the political, economic and commercial, social and environmental spectrum.
At this event, the Latin American Chevening scholars - the region's next generation of leaders - will breakout into discussions on questions such as...
- How do you see the relationship between the UK and your country/the region in general?
- Where do you see the opportunities?
- What should we do more of/less of?
- What are our ‘competitors’ doing?
- What does success in 2030 look like?
These questions will be discussed within themes such as 'Business & Entrepreneurship', 'Soft Power, Culture & Education' and 'Health, Science & Innovation.'
