About CORE

Accessible, relevant, real-world economics teaching, available and free to everyone. Hanc ego assentior, cum teneam sententiam, quid bonum esse vult, summumque malum et.

Our Mission

CORE’s vision is that a radically transformed economics education can contribute to a more just, sustainable, and democratic world in which future citizens are empowered by a new economics to understand and debate how best to address pressing societal problems.

  • change economics education globally to a focus on the most important problems faced by our societies including climate change, injustice, innovation and the future of work,
  • put the student at the centre of pedagogy using learning materials and experiences attuned both to the societal problems that students care about and to how students acquire facility and confidence in using and communicating economics,
  • make knowledge freely available on a global scale by providing high-quality open access educational resources,
  • help change who studies economics to include more women and other underrepresented groups by changing content, pedagogy and access to knowledge.
