“Economics for Campaigners”
Free public events
Organized by Greenwich Political Economy Research Group / Institute of Political Economy, Governance, Finance and Accountability (GPERC/PEGFA)
University of Greenwich (UoG)
“Economics for Campaigners” is a series of free public events for citizens and campaigners, who want to understand economics to make an impact on economic policies and contribute to policy debates in their organizations and communities at the local, national or international level.
We will have an interactive discussion exploring difficult questions; we will debunk myths, challenge common misconceptions, and discuss alternatives to mainstream policies. The aim is to support citizens and campaigners to become confident in contributing to policy debates in their communities and organisations about the most urgent social and economic questions of our time. We assume no prior background knowledge and aim to introduce key concepts building on your experience as citizens or campaigners.
All events are scheduled for 19:00-21:00 to make it feasible to attend after work. Events last for two hours per seminar including an introduction and lots of time for debate in a participatory format including group discussions and/or questions and answers.
While the events are free, please register here for both events. All events are at the University of Greenwich, Park Row, SE109LS, Greenwich, London. The details of the programme and location are here.
