The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has given for the first time a lecture in French on financial education for Secundary Education (ESO) students in Cadiz. This action reflects the programme’s interest in exploring new ways and in extending is target audience, in its work to bring the financial education closer to citizens.

 

This workshop, organized at the IES Drago, bilingual (Spanish-French) high school in the city of Cadiz, has been attended by some thirty students. It falls within the tenth edition of the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People of the Edufinet Project.

 

During this school year 2018-2019, conferences have been organized in Andalusia, Castilla y Leon, Castilla-La Mancha, Extremadura and Melilla. Invitations have been extended to over 45,000 students from 1,200 high schools.

 

The 10th Conferences on Financial Education for Young People intend to promote education on finances, focusing on daily elements, with the purpose of providing Secondary and Baccalaureate students with 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 analyse basic economic indicators, the financial system and the most usual products and services (notions on fixed income and securities, investment funds, public pension system or loans, for instance).

 

Edufinet Project, a pioneering financial education programme

 

The Edufinet Project launched in 2007 its Internet portal, promoted by Unicaja and with the collaboration of the International University of Andalusia (Universidad Internacional de Andalucía, UNIA) and the University of Malaga (UMA), although its development began in 2005.

 

A lo largo de sus cerca de 15 años de trayectoria, más de  127.600 personas han participado de forma directa en jornadas y encuentros, de las que más de 89.000 eran jóvenes. En cuanto a su página web (www.edufinet.com), cuenta con más de 7,6 millones de visitas acumuladas, con consultas y accesos procedentes de más de 180 países.

 

During its nearly 15 years of history, more than 127,600 people have participated directly in conferences and workshops, of which 89,000 were young people. The website www.edufinet.com has received so far more than 7.6 million visits, with consults and access from over 180 countries.

 

This Internet portal offers systematic and practical information in a question-answer format, where no previous knowledge is required. Two additional portals with specific contents were created later: one for business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp) and one for young people (Edufinext).

 

In addition to the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People and the Financial Olympics, Edufinet also fosters the development of workshops and lectures at universities, summer courses or participation in international projects. Furthermore, it promotes several publications, such as the ‘Financial Guide’ and the ‘Financial Guide for Business Owners and Entrerpreneurs’.
