Head to the Bank of England – the beating heart of the UK’s economy. Meet your guide and hear from the staff on the role of the bank and why it’s vital for the health of our economy.
Next up, stretch your legs on a walking tour of the area surrounding the Bank of England. Discover all about the City of London, tracing the history of this economic hub.
Take a break for lunch in the informal dining space of a modern co-working space.
Listen up in a session with a start-up that’s trying to change something about the economy. The speaker will talk you through their company’s journey, from finding a gap in the market right through to running a successful company. They’ll reflect on their experience, tell you about the challenges of their work and give you advice on the skills needed to thrive in the start-up environment. Have some questions prepared for the Q&A at the end too. If you’ve got any bright ideas, now’s the chance to test them out!
Example start-up firms include not-for-profit news and campaign site, Economy, and advertising-for-good platform, The Good Loop.
Head to the Zifferblat café, where customers pay for time rather than goods. Take part in an economics workshop where you’ll rethink the economic status quo.
Workshop materials created by, and credited to, economics charity, Economy.
