Welcome to the conference, and welcome to our interactive blog.

Have you participated in a workshop that changed the way you view the economy? Have you found one of our interactive events particularly stimulating? Disagreed entirely with one of our speakers? We’d love to hear your first-hand experience and reactions. This blog will be running live throughout the conference, with contributions from attendees across the board. With regular updates as the conference is happening, it’s here that you’ll read contributions from conference student organisers; from esteemed economists and speakers; from our gracious volunteers but most importantly… from you!

We welcome posts from any conference attendees, from anyone who wanted to come but sadly couldn’t, or from anyone who just wants to get involved in this important conversation. After all, as economics is for everyone, everyone is welcome to join this debate.

Our rules of engagement:

This blog is a participatory place designed to open up the debate about economics, why it matters, and what economics means to everyone all members of society. We welcome all views and perspectives, and will respect the views, however divergent, that you wish to post here. In return, we simply ask that you treat this space with equal respect. We will endeavour to include all submissions to the blog, but reserve the right to reject posts containing offensive language or content, or those that are wildly off-topic. This is a space for open, honest and participatory debate. We hope you join the conversation, and we can’t wait to hear what everyone has to say!
