Words by Ross Cathcart, Head of Local Comms and Events, Rethinking Economics
Rethinking Economics is excited to give you the chance to apply to our annual Campaigning Weekend-Away in Edale, Peak District.
The weekend from from Friday 19th – Sunday 21st October. Applications to attend are open to any UK-based students who organise in a Rethinking Economics local group or who would like to become more involved with the network.
What is Edale?
Edale is a weekend residential open to UK-based students who organise in a Rethinking Economics local group or who would like to become more involved with the network. It is organised to strengthen the campaign and the network and is a great opportunity for you to meet other students involved in the movement. There’ll be a range of workshops, talks, and discussions all designed to enhance the campaign at your university for curriculum reform and to give you a say over what the Rethinking Economics network in the UK should be focusing on.
What are the entry requirements?
To apply you need to be a student currently studying in the UK. Aside from that, you need to be prepared to get stuck in during a busy week of campaign preparation and skills-sharing, and be ready to implement your new skills when back at university.
There will be at least two places available for every group.
**Please circulate this survey to your committee members and key organisers for them to apply.**
