Warwick Economics Summit 

February 2021 will see the 20th annual student-run Economics Summit, which regularly attracts a starry line-up of eminent speakers (Nobel Prize-winners, ex-Prime Ministers from Europe, MPs and editors in chief of leading economic publications among them). This is student-led, and also attracts international delegation of students from around Europe. For 2020/21, Economics Summit is opening its (virtual!) doors to students aged 16 to 18, and they would love you to join them online!
