Name: Rethinking Economics
Category: Economy & finance
Project summary: Rethinking Economics is an international network of students, academics and professionals building a better economics in society and the classroom.
Through a mixture of campaigning, events and engaging projects, Rethinking Economics connects people globally to discuss and enact the change needed for the future of economics, and to propel the vital debate on what economics is today.
Detailed summary: Our purpose is to create economic influencers who will expedite the creation of economies around the world which serve people and planet. These influencers will be equipped with the skills they need to overcome the challenges of the 21st century. They will be able to think critically and creatively, whether they be economists, academics, business-leaders, teachers, or policy-makers. They will be open-minded, adaptable and able to recognise the strengths and limitations of different economic ideas. They will be able to communicate economic ideas to non-economists and therefore be accountable to the people they serve. They will be made up of a diverse group of people from different class, racial and gender backgrounds.
Get in touch if you want to connect with Rethink Economics on any research or project ideas that will support to progress their work.
