Durham Global Alliance

Promoting international opportunities for young people in County Durham


The Alliance is made up of representatives of Durham County Council, Durham University, Culture Durham, Durham Sport, Durham Youth Council, Business Durham, New College Durham, Crook Primary School and Belmont School.

Together they work to promote and develop international opportunities in line with the British Council’s pledge :

We want to offer every child and young person in the United Kingdom, whatever their background or interests, the opportunity to learn from – and connect with – other people in the UK and around the world.

The UK’s future will be shaped by our international links and the way we work with partners to tackle the challenges facing us all. 

We pledge to do what we can to give our young people the understanding, skills and confidence to make those connections for themselves – to enrich their lives and the lives of everyone in the UK.
