The Citizens' Economic Council is a programme designed to give citizens a say on national economic policy, and influence over the future of the UK economy.
We aim to build a stronger economic democracy in the UK through informed engagement and discussion. The key activity within this 2-year programme was the Council itself, in which a group of 54 citizens undertook a journey of economic inquiry to deliberate and innovate on economic policy. The process was overseen by an independent advisory group.
We hope that the Council will be a catalyst for sparking a broader public discussion about the goals and priorities of economic policy, through an open online resource library and by promoting citizen deliberation over economic policy at events in communities up and down the country.
