The British Council builds connections, understanding and trust between people in the UK and other countries through arts and culture, education and the English language.

We help young people to gain the skills, confidence and connections they are looking for to realise their potential and to participate in strong and inclusive communities. We support them to gain internationally recognised qualifications and to get a high-quality education. Our work in arts and culture stimulates creative expression and exchange, and works to protect cultural heritage at risk. 

We have been working in Libya since 1957. Every year we connect with thousands of students, educators, and policymakers in Libya. The focus of our work is on providing opportunities for young people through:

  • supporting young people to achieve the education, qualifications and skills needed to reach their potential in their future careers.
  • creating and developing new networks and platforms to give young people a greater voice in society.
  • developing institutions and ecosystems that support inclusion and empowerment of young people, addressing issues that affect people’s lives.
