FDCO Next Generation Economics Competition

FDCO have announced this year's Next Generation competition, open for UK students in Years 10-13 (or equivalent). With a limit of 800 words, it's much shorter than other competitions and takes the form of a letter rather than an essay.


This year's questions are:

  1. What economic policies should governments around the world use to economically empower women and girls?

  2. What economic policies should the UK government use to facilitate a fair transition away from fossil fuels globally?


The accompanying 'Write like an Economist' guide gives some useful tips on what the judges are looking for.


The closing date is 12th January 2022.
