Speaker:

  • Prof Sue Himmelweit, Emeritus Professor, Open University

We will have an interactive discussion exploring difficult questions; we will debunk myths, challenge common misconceptions, and discuss alternatives to mainstream policies. 

The aim is to support citizens and campaigners to become confident in contributing to policy debates in their communities and organisations about the most urgent social and economic questions of our time. 

We assume no prior background knowledge and aim to introduce key concepts building on your experience as citizens or campaigners.
