Unicaja, through the Edufinet Project, organizes one more year in Jaen its Conferences on Financial Education for Young People, reaching its tenth edition. Their goal is to keep on working to provide Secondary and Baccalaureate students with a clear view of the financial and economic world.

 

In particular, the first workshop of the X Conferences on Fiancial Education for Young People in Jaen has been held in IES El Valle, in the city of Jaen, with the participation of 70 students.

 

The tenth edition of these conferences began last week in the cities of Malaga and Almeria, and they intend to exceed the participation of the previous year, reaching 20,000 students. Invitations have been extended to 45,000 students from nearly 1,200 educational centers in Andalusia, Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y León, Extremadura, Madrid, Ceuta and Melilla.

 

The X Conferences on Financial Education for Young People intend to promote financial literacy, focusing on daily elements, with the purpose of teaching Secondary and Baccalaureate high school students the appropriate skills for their day-to-day use.

 

In sum, the aim is to continue teaching the basic aspects of economics and finances, paying special attention to the financial products and services that students use or will use throughout their life.

 

The workshops given in high schools are very practical, adapted to the needs of young people. In general, they cover basic economic indicators and the most usual products and services (notions on fixed income and securities, mutual funds, public pension system or loans).

 

The students attending the X Conferences on Financial Education for Young People can show what they have learnt at the school competition Financial Olympics, which is also celebrating its tenth edition.

 

Edufinet Project

 

The Edufinet Project, currently promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, launched in 2017 its Internet portal, fostered by Unicaja and with the collaboration of the International University of Andalusia (Universidad Internacional de Andalucía, UNIA) and the University of Malaga (UMA).

 

However, the development of the project started in 2005 within Unicaja, and it became one of the first financial institutions in Spain to launch an initiative of this kind. It currently collaborates with 14 universities and over ten institutions and business organizations.

 

During its eleven years of trajectory, more than 127,600 people have participated in the different conferences, workshops, lectures and seminars developed, of which 89,000 have attended the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People. The website www.edufinet.com has registered so far more than 7.6 million visits, with access from nearly 180 countries.

 

Edufinet offers two additional specific Internet portals: one aimed at business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp) and one aimed at financial education for young people (Edufinext).
