10 Jul BFPG at Big Tent Ideas Festival
The British Foreign Policy Group will be returning to Big Tent Ideas Festival this year on Saturday 31st August at Mudchute Farm, Isle of Dogs. We will be hosting two panel discussions in the ‘Global’ tent: one on ‘The Future of Britain’s Place in the World’ and one on ‘UK Sport and Soft Power’
The Future of Britain’s Place in the World
10.30-11.20, Global Tent
This session will discuss public opinion on foreign policy in the UK (based on our polling done earlier in 2019) and also gauge audience opinion on foreign policy issues through interactive voting. With these results the aim is to kickstart a wider discussion on Britain’s place in the world both now and in the future.
UK Sport and Soft Power
15.50-16.40, Global Tent
This panel discussion will consider the role that sport can play in enhancing the UK’s soft power. The UK is considered a Soft Power Superpower with strong assets such as educational institutions, arts, and sporting teams. The panel will seek to explore the role that the UK’s sporting assets can play as a soft power tool, and how best we can harness this tool to the country’s advantage.
