Bank of England Citizens’ Panel What Does Our Economy Mean To You?
A special one-off live event to discuss your thoughts on the economy with The Bank of England.
The Bank of England set up their Citizens’ Forum community in 2018 to engage directly with the public they serve. Since then they have run live and virtual events all across the country, hearing first-hand experiences of the economy and how it is working for people.
In this informal session, you will have the opportunity to meet bank staff, find out a bit more about the work of the bank and ask any questions that you may have. But the main purpose of the session is to listen to you.
In smaller breakout groups bank staff would like to hear about your first-hand experiences of the economy; about work, pay and the cost of living, and how Covid-19 may have affected the financial decisions that you now make.
Booking for this free event will open 25 October.
Our tenth Festival of Economics run Wednesday 17 – Friday 19 November 2021. It is co-programmed by Diane Coyle (University of Cambridge and Enlightenment Economics) and Richard Davies (professor of Public Understanding of Economics, Bristol University and author of Extreme Economies). You can see the full programme here.
