THE ECONOMIST’s Open Future initiative was begun last year to make the case for political, economic and social freedoms at a time when these values are under assault. We want this exploration of ideas to involve our critics as well as our supporters.
As part of the initiative we are holding an essay contest. It is open to people between 16 and 25 years old. Essays should be no longer than 1,000 words.
Benefits • The prize for the winner will be an invitation to one of The Economist’s Open Future events to be held on October 5th 2019 and at venues in Hong Kong, Manchester and Chicago. This will include an economy-class flight for the winner, if required to get to the relevant event, and hotel accommodation for at least two nights. The Economist will determine in its sole discretion which Open Future event location to award to the winner.
Deadline is July 31, 2019.
