Promoting Economic Pluralism, along with a range of partners, is hosting Festival For Change, an online series of events to give young people the opportunity to make their view of change influential.
Covid-19 is a huge tragedy which has also dramatically revealed the weaknesses and lack of sustainability in our current economic models. Across the globe, people are realising that we owe it to those who have suffered to use the recovery to build back better – to find new ways of organising our economies to address inequality and the ecological crisis we face.
We want diverse young people from around the world, bringing their ideas and lived experience, to have a bigger voice by co-creating their own proposals as to what building back better should look like. And this is not just for those who have studied economics. We all live in economies and they interact with politics, society, the ecology, design, racism, sexism etc. The more diverse the perspectives, the better the thinking.
From 27th July, you can enjoy a series of online events every week via a bespoke and unique online platform that allows you to move freely, meet new people, join in different discussions and attend different events – just like a festival! You will be able to hear presentations from inspiring speakers, attend workshops, and put forward your proposal to build back better.
The standout proposals will be presented in webinars and further developed. The best ideas will finally be selected by a high-profile panel for public vote in October.
