In June and July 2016 Speakers for School’s annual talk series focussed on the results of the much debated EU Referendum. Our Speakers addressed the question ‘What Now?’ in the days and weeks following the vote.
Over 25 Speaker Ambassadors gave their time to the campaign through school talks, giving their expert views on the outcome, how it will affect the country, whilst tackling student questions on what this means for young people in the UK.
Those who took part in the campaign included, but was not limited to:
The campaign included a nationally-streamed panel debate ‘The EU Referendum: What Now?’, giving students a chance to hear directly from VIP speakers about the outcome of the vote. The exclusive Post-EU Referendum ‘Question Time’, took place in partnership with the TES, was chaired by ITV’s Robert Peston. See the event here: Live Panel & Debate Video
The event featured a stellar panel including:
