Creating international opportunities for the people of the UK and Nepal

Cultural relations is at the heart of everything the British Council has been chartered to do. Cultural relations builds international trust and understanding, generates opportunities for individuals to fulfil their potential and fosters the cooperation which contributes to a stable world. The exchange of knowledge and ideas generates opportunities and responds to aspirations.

We do this through large scale programmes of activity with partners throughout the world that mobilise the power of education, the arts and creativity, sport, science, English and governance to build relationships of mutual benefit. We work over the long term, strive to protect diversity and bring the people of the world closer together.
