What is the role of young people in disruptive innovation?

If we are going to redesign our economy, we need as many people involved in this process as possible. In particular, young people, for whom have always been a key driver of social change. In this session we will hear from a few students on why during a decade of unprecedented disruption, young people must step-up and seize the once-in-a-generation opportunity to redefine our economic system.

We will explore why we must do far more to challenge old orthodoxies, within economics and beyond. This session is brought to you by Economics for Change, a student-run organisation striving for economics to be fit for the 21st century.
