The Conferences will take place during the school year 2018-2019 in Andalusia, Castilla León, Castilla-La Mancha, Madrid, Ceuta and Melilla. Invitations have been extended to 45,000 students from nearly 1,200 educational centers.

 

The Edufinet Project on financial education is a pioneering programme in Spain and it currently collaborates with 14 universities and more than ten institutions and business organizations.

 

The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has started in Cadiz its 10th Conferences on Financial Education for Young People. The goal of these lectures is to teach Secondary and Baccalaureate students the keys of the financial world. This year the inaugural session has been organized at the IES Cornelio Balbo.

 

The Conferences will take place during the school year 2018-2019 in Andalusia, Castilla León, Castilla-La Mancha, Extremadura, Madrid, Ceuta and Melilla. Invitations have been extended to more than 45,000 students from nearly 1,200 educational centers.

 

The 10th 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 particular, 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, for instance).

 

The students attending the 10th 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 launched in 2007 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. During its eleven years of trajectory, more than 127,600 people have participated directly or indirectly in the different conferences, workshops, lectures and seminars developed, of which 89,000 were young people. The website www.edufinet.com has registered so far more than 7.6 million visits, with access from nearly 180 countries.

 

This Internet portal offers systematic and practical information, in a question-answer format where no previous knowledge is required. Additionally, two other specific portals were created: the first one addressed to business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp), and the second one, for young people (Edufinext).

 

In addition to the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People and the Financial Olympics, Edufient also fosters the organization of workshops and lectures at universities, summer courses or participation in international projects. It also promotes publications, such as the ‘Financial Guide’ or the ‘Financial Guide for business owners and entrepreneurs’
