Why this festival?

This festival responds to big flaws in existing economic models exposed by Covid-19. We wanted young people at the heart of how we build back better – and proposals submitted have shown great new thinking. Our focus now is to help participants navigate a changing world of work.

Who drove this festival?

Promoting Economic Pluralism (PEP), together with some amazing partners, is hosting this series of pioneering online events. The charity is known for innovation – opening space for discussion of different approaches to organise economies to address the current issues we face. For example, last year the popular ‘Not the Nobel Prize’ competition was a key focus. Festival for Change promises to be just as energising and enduring.
