Debt & economics: Education for action!
Sat 3 June 2017, 11:00 – 17:00 BST
Inequality and debt are on the rise- eight men now own as much wealth as half the world’s population. The debt payments of impoverished countries are increasing rapidly and are at the highest level for a decade. Closer to home, PFI debt is having a huge impact on NHS finances and students leaving UK universities now face higher average debts than American students, with the average student graduating with more than £44,000 debt.
This spring, join Jubilee Debt Campaign for an interactive, informative, educational day-long workshop looking at how debt and economics are impacting people around the world in 2017. Discuss whether debts should always be paid and understand more about the historical and current connections between debt and inequality. Learn about why Ghana’s debt is higher now than it was in 2005 - even after a large write-off - and how NHS debt is linked to global south debt through Public Private Partnerships. Importantly, come and hear about debt resistance, positive alternatives and how you can be a part of a global and national movement for debt justice!
This day-long workshops is totally FREE and is part of a series of workshops taking place in cities across the UK.
The workshop will be delivered by debt expert and facilitator Fanny Malinen.
There will be a one-hour lunchbreak, and smaller breaks during the day.
