The Economist Educational Foundation
Giving young people the skills to think for themselves about current affairs.
Emily Evans, Founder and CEO
We enable inspiring discussions about the news in, and between, schools. Discussions that invite young people to be curious about the world’s biggest ideas and challenges, and consider what should be done about them.
Joining these discussions inspires young people to think big about the world and their possibilities in it. Just as importantly, it builds essential knowledge of current affairs, critical thinking, communication skills and confidence.
These news literacy capabilities can help to change a young person’s life. They’re hugely valuable socially, in education, in the workplace and in public life. They're increasingly important for thriving in the modern world.
What we do
We provide all that's needed for thoughtful topical discussions to take place in classrooms and between schools in different communities all over the UK:
-Original, multimedia news content for young people
-Innovative online discussion platforms
-Bespoke implementation support
-Prestigious recognition and rewardsWe're passionate about providing as many young people as possible with the opportunity to join these conversations, and we have ambitious plans to work with many more schools in the coming two years.
