In an age of misinformation, polarisation and fake news, our students are bombarded with media they can’t make sense of and debates they can’t access. So how do we get students talking, and thinking critically, about the most pressing issues of our time?

The Economist Educational Foundation’s Topical Talk resources combine journalistic expertise with innovative teaching know-how. Each week you’ll receive ready-made and fully-planned lessons that tackle real issues, head-on: from racial equity to the climate crisis, these resources empower your students to have informed, open-minded discussions about the news stories affecting their lives.
