The British Council is celebrating its 80th anniversary

Originally called the 'British Committee for Relations with Other Countries', the British Council was founded in 1934. Our first overseas offices opened in 1938.

To mark 80 years of cultural relations, we have taken the opportunity to look back and consider significant changes that have taken place during the period of our organisation's existence.

We asked a panel of 25 eminent scientists, technologists, academics, artists, writers, broadcasters and world leaders to choose their most significant moments of the past 80 years. We then asked 10,000 people around the world to vote to rank the final list.

The result? A list of 80 thought-provoking moments that provide a snapshot of trends, people and innovations that have shaped the world we live in today.

Discover the full list and join us in the debate:
