The Economist Foundation
The Economist Educational Foundation is a charity that was set up from within The Economist in 2012. Our vision is that all young people have an informed view of the world, the thinking skills to interpret it and the platforms to influence it, so they can fulfill their potential.
We believe that joining inquisitive conversations about current affairs gives young people powerful tools to achieve their potential: an informed view of their world, the thinking skills to interpret it and platforms to influence it. That’s why our programmes bring 8- to 18-year-olds into inspiring conversations about the world around them.
