Economy Rewired

location Newspeak House | 6:30 PM-8 PM Monday 16 April 2018 (GMT)

Are you a software developer interested in the media or economics? Or a journalist interested in technology’s capacity to inform and empower?

Join us for this informal brainstorming evening hosted by Economy, a non-profit organisation that aims to make economics more accessible and relevant to the public. Economy wants to experiment with innovative technologies that can change people's consumption of news and make economics less confusing. They also believe that bringing people together from different fields is the best way to spark creativity. You don’t need a deep knowledge of economics, just an interest in helping the public make better life choices.

Swap ideas. Meet interesting people. Share a beer.

7:10pm: Group Brainstorm 2: What type of products could we design to embed a little bit of economic learning and literacy into people's daily routine?

Economy is a public education charity promoting accessible, engaging and pluralist economics. We produce accessible, relatable, engaging content on the subject for our digital platform,, and run economics crash courses in marginalised communities across the UK. We also campaign for economics to be statutory in schools, and work with economic institutions to create spaces for people to engage with their policies and ideas in an accessible way.
