The Economist Education Foundation

We are The Economist Educational Foundation, an independent charity that leverages the journalistic expertise of The Economist newspaper.

We provide opportunities to schools that build young people’s knowledge of current affairs, critical thinking, communication skills and confidence through inspiring discussions about current affairs.

This has never been more important. In the face of misinformation and polarised debates in the media, news literacy enables young people to form an accurate picture of the world and have constructive conversations with people who see things differently.
