The Citizens' Economic Council is a programme which will give citizens a say on national economic policy, and influence the future of the UK economy.
The process will be overseen by an independent advisory group. The Council will be a catalyst for sparking a broader public discussion about the goals and priorities of economic policy, through an open online course and by promoting citizen deliberation over economic policy at events in communities up and down the country. Its aim is to build a stronger economic democracy in the UK through informed engagement and discussion. A group of 50-60 citizens will meet over 2 years on a journey of economic inquiry where they will deliberate and innovate on economic policy.
You will be able to follow the deliberations of the Council via a live-stream of CEC seminars. There will also be opportunity to participate in the conversation on Twitter #citizenseconomy @citizenseconomy
