- Zoom Club
In this four-week course we will be learning about poverty. We will explore: -How poverty is understood and measured (multi-dimentional, relative, absolute poverty) - Social exclusion and poverty (marginalisation, debates about culture, UBI) - The impact of globalisation and poverty (trade and - trade and poverty) - Designing a research study on poverty, and designing a social campaign to address poverty. This course aims to support students working at a GCSE+ level to enrich their understanding of the social world. Economics, politics, geography, history, and philosophy will be part of our discussions. Students working outside the traditional British exam system can use this course to earn high school credit by fulfilling the (optional) coursework. In this term this will include reading a biography, designing a research study, and creating a social media campaign. The course will be limited to 6 thinkers to ensure rich conversations and to be able to give adequate support and feedback to each Thinker. ** Please note, there will be no session on January 25th
We will do our utmost to ensure every booked class takes place. However, we strongly believe in the value of conversation between thinkers. Thus, we will not run a class with less than the minimum number of students. If we do not have a full group 24 hours before the class is set to start we will, sadly, cancel the session, refund all participants, and seek to run the class at a different time. Our full booking and cancellation policy can be found in our Terms and Services.
