Community Crash Course

Community Crash Course in Everyday Economics

These participatory courses encourage participants to explore economic concepts they may have found daunting, and empower them to engage in economic decisions that affect their lives. We want to help foster a critical public economics, but we need your help to get there.

What it is?

Economy, our sister charity, has devised a set of accessible economics session plans. These session plans have been designed so that anyone can download them, get a group together, and facilitate a session to learn about economics together. The sessions start from our day-to-day experience of living in the world, then branch out to other economic ideas from there, like banks, our environment, and our workplaces. They’ve been designed to be participatory, playful, and accessible to all. Economy is often on the look out for Rethinking network members to facilitate its Crash Courses.

Why do it?

You’ll be helping take Rethinking Economics one step towards our mission to ‘Democratise economics’. Plus, running a course can be really fun… we know from experience! If you like talking about economics, discussing and questioning the ideas within it, and sharing knowledge with others, then facilitating one of these courses is for you.
