The Economist Educational Foundation
Giving young people the skills to think for themselves about current affairs.
We enable inspiring discussions about the news in schools. We provide educational news content, teacher training and resources. We also bring together schools from different communities and countries for global conversations.
By taking part in these discussions, young people learn to think for themselves about the news. They become able to see fake news, one-sided debates and unsound arguments for what they are. They practice having their say about issues affecting their lives.
In uncertain times, the ability to think critically and communicate confidently about real-world issues is a hugely valuable asset. It not only gives young people a voice, it helps them to succeed in school, the workplace and beyond.Get in touch to find out more: www.economistfoundation.org
