The Outstanding Contribution to Academic Communities goes to the Kent Economics Society at this years Kent student awards.
The Kent Economics Society, whose aim this year has been to engage students with economics outside lectures, won the Outstanding Contribution to Academic Communities award this week. The society ran weekly meetings on various topics within economics and arranged socials, organised a trip to Frankfurt (to visit the European Central Bank as well as the European financial district) and an Economics Summit. The summit was a day long event, open to all members of the public, and platformed various economic experts to speak on some of the biggest issues facing our decade: climate change, inequality and mechanisation.
Earlier this year the society were awarded with the Kent Union Academic Society for 2020.
