Economics is for all of us

Economics is complex and best left to the experts? Right? Wrong. The economy affects all of us. We can all get our heads around it.

This day long workshop is designed for people who are interested in social justice, but feel intimidated when ‘economics’ comes up in a conversation.

It will give you a tour through the history of the debt crisis and the global austerity programme. It’ll cover some basic economic concepts and jargon, explain the UK’s debt and deficit and ask whether the UK really has a debt crisis. It’ll also include some practical communication session, helping you to feel more confident busting economic myths and promoting a fairer economy.

This is a fun, participative, training that will make you feel more confident to win arguments for a fairer economic system, whether you need it to run a big campaign, or to get your point across at the next family gathering!

Please bring some food to share for lunch, and we’ll eat together.
