Free workshop | Brexit: Should the UK have a second referendum?


For nearly three years now, Brexit has dominated the news in Europe and beyond. One persistent debate asks whether a second referendum is the best way forward. This workshop explores the arguments on either side of the debate and asks students to form their own opinions.


– Familiarises students with important keywords
– Covers the timeline of Brexit up to February 2019
– Unpicks the arguments for and against a second referendum
– Structures a group discussion

Everything is provided, from session guides to resource activities, to run a 75 minute workshop for students aged 11 to 15.

In January, The Economist invited people on both sides of the debate to state their case. Read the arguments here:
