There is no cost to participate, this is a free course. If you would like to help empower young people to change their world, you can donate to Chatham House. We are a registered charity and every donation helps us to inspire future generations.
As an independent, non-profit research and policy institute in central London focused on international relations and global issues, our researchers develop positive solutions to global challenges, working with governments, charities, businesses and society to build a better future.
The summer school explores some of the major themes our researchers and experts are working on, and gives you an opportunity to participate in the discussion and share your vision for the future.
