Workshops & Presentations

Working in different countries and in different languages, a variety of workshops and presentations are offered (click for examples). Ranging in style from informal to structured, and in content from prepared themes to improvised material, these events seek to make economics a lively and informative discipline. They are often accompanied by chalk drawings on black paper, a.k.a. 'PowerPointPlus', with those taking part encouraged to participate by using this and other media, including drama, music and song.
