At the Economic Research Council, we are driven by a set of core values that reflect our commitment to fostering an enlightened, inclusive, and empowered society. These values are the bedrock of our identity, guiding our actions, shaping our programs, and informing our approach to economic research and education. They reflect not only the principles we stand for but also the future we aspire to create.
Accessibility is fundamental to our work at the Economic Research Council. We are dedicated to breaking down barriers to economic knowledge, ensuring that our research, events, and educational resources are available to all, regardless of their background or level of expertise. By leveraging technology and innovative communication strategies, we aim to make complex economic concepts understandable and relevant to a broad audience. Our commitment to accessibility ensures that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow, and participate in economic conversations that shape our world.
At the Economic Research Council, we believe in the transformative power of knowledge. Empowerment through education lies at the core of our mission, as we strive to enable individuals and communities to engage confidently in economic discourse. By equipping people with a deep understanding of economic principles and their real-world applications, we aim to foster a society capable of making informed decisions and advocating for meaningful change. Our initiatives are designed to inspire action, encourage critical thinking, and empower everyone to contribute to a more equitable and prosperous future.
The Economic Research Council champions pluralism in economic thought and practice. We recognise that the challenges facing our world are multifaceted and that addressing them requires a diversity of perspectives and approaches. By fostering an environment where varied economic theories and methodologies are explored and respected, we encourage robust debate and a deeper understanding of economic phenomena. Pluralism guides our research, events, and educational programs, ensuring that we consider a wide range of viewpoints and solutions. This commitment to pluralism enriches our discourse and empowers us to approach economic challenges with creativity and insight.
How you can help us grow
As a charity with a strong history and keen desire to promote economic education, we’re incredibly pleased to launch our new sixth form programme.
Economics teachers work incredibly hard up and down the country ensuring their students are not only prepared for their A-level examinations, but for life ahead. Our sixth form programme supplements this hard work by offering a series of events targeted specifically towards 6th form students. The aim of the event series is to expand upon the concepts learnt within A-level economics, either by contextualising themes, delving into greater detail, evaluating/scrutinising ideas, or going beyond what is taught.
We’ve established a bespoke programme for 6th form students, separate from our main programme of events, involving 6 webinars this academic year (one in each half term). These webinars will provide students with wider and deeper economic knowledge, assisting their economic education, boosting their grades, and making them more well-rounded young economists. We have striven to include speakers right at the top of their field, and as such have developed a schedule of incredibly prestigious names.
We need further support and sponsorship to be able to role this out further nationwide. Email us today to find out how you can help do this.
