Elections and democracy in 2024

This year, empower students aged 10+ with informed and open-minded discussions about elections and democracy.

In 2024 around 2 billion people will vote to choose new leaders in elections that will affect 4.2 billion people – over half the global population!

Our weekly resources help students engage in inspiring discussions about the news and develop essential critical-thinking, oracy and communication skills, media literacy and cultural capital.

Created by experienced teachers and world-leading journalists at The Economist, our collection of free teaching resources helps students learn about what elections are happening what this means for democracy.
