Strengthening Our Commitment to the Next Generation

Panel of Young Advisers and Queen Elizabeth II Academy Ambassadors underscore our drive to reach, engage and inspire young people to change their world.

Two new initiatives are designed to give the next generation a greater say in the strategic direction of Chatham House and to help build a global network of young voices to participate in institute activities.

The Panel of Young Advisers is a group of engaged individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds, active in their field and community, recruited through an open process and based in seven countries: Denmark, Georgia, Germany, Kenya, Nigeria, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

The panel will engage with the director, executive team, and members of the governing council, mirroring some of the activities of the longstanding Panel of Senior Advisers. Made up of 21 individual members the panel’s role will be to:

  • Play a part in shaping Chatham House’s next generation engagement strategy
  • Share ideas and offer innovative approaches to connecting the next generation to the work and mission of the institute

The Queen Elizabeth II Academy Ambassadors is a network of young professionals and university students from across the UK, selected following their participation in the Next Generation International Affairs workshops organised by the institute’s Queen Elizabeth II Academy in Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Liverpool and Manchester.

The ambassadors will work with Academy staff by drawing on their networks and participating in roundtables designed to share knowledge about the most important issues in international affairs. They will also:

  • Offer ideas to help shape the Academy’s future programme of next generation engagement
  • Engage in professional development activities and expand their networks by attending leadership training and discussion events

Along with another flagship initiative, Common Futures Conversations, the panel and ambassadors will play a crucial role in helping Chatham House deliver on our second century ambition to reach, engage and inspire young people to change their world.
