What is the ‘green economy’, how did it come about and does it work? Should we have economic growth in a time of climate change? Can we buy our way out of environmental problems? Should and can we put a ‘price’ on how valuable bees are to our economy? Learn about and explore these issues in this interactive workshop with Clare Birkett, Head of Adult Education at Economy.

Economy is a young charity with a mission to make economics more understandable. In 2016, Economy found only 12% of the UK public felt that politicians and the media talk about economics in an accessible way. Economy make jargon-free content about the economics issues people really care about and works with schools, communities, and economic institutions to make the subject more clear and engaging.

Bristol Festival of Economics is presented in association with

Triodos Bank
