We are excited to announce that 2019 marks ten years of the Active Citizens programme across almost 80 countries! 

In order to recognise the achievements of the programme and the incredible work of over 285,000 change-makers, there has been a series of celebrations and commemorations taking place across the globe. 

At the British Council office in London there's a free exhibition showcasing the inspiring individuals, networks and organisations we call Active Citizens. The exhibition is running Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm, until 3 January 2020. 

You can also see this content in our special 10-year anniversary publication which explores the stories in greater depth (see the downloads section below).  

Online, there have been competitions to find the best social action projects as well as local showcase events to mark country specific milestones. Five projects were put to the public vote on Facebook via the Active Citizens page and the winning project was Keep Clean, Keep Green and the Awakening of a Dream, from Pakistan.
