What is the Generation UK: China Network?

The Generation UK: China Network is a British Council initiative giving UK nationals with work, study or volunteering experience in China a platform to connect with one another across different industries, professions and career stages. As the legacy initiative of Generation UK, the Network aims to develop a generation of talented, globally mobile and culturally agile young people who can succeed and compete in an increasingly international business environment.

Why join?

With over 4,000 members, the Generation UK Network supports UK nationals to: 

  • build and expand their professional networks
  • keep informed about job opportunities and China developments
  • interact and debate with like-minded individuals and China-engaged industry leaders, such as our Leading Lights
  • attend high-profile networking events.
