Young people need to come to a critical understanding of the issues that face them and TEAM helps them to do so by testing their ideas with active debate at our interactive conferences (for Years 12 & 13) in schools and universities. The conferences are for students from diverse backgrounds and we aim to reach those who would not normally have the opportunity to listen to inspiring speakers from a variety of walks of life – the diplomatic services, the charity sector, the legal profession, media and business. Speakers have been from many organisations such as Amnesty International, Labour Behind the Labour, Christian Aid, the BBC, Channel 4, Green Peace, the CBI and the Institute of Economic Affairs.

Here are some examples of our past conferences:
