The II Lectures on Financial Education for Adults, with sessions ranging 60 to 90 minutes, have started at the Section of Permanent Education in Campillos (Malaga).

 

As in other activities of Edufinet, the goal of this cycle of lectures is to provide the participants with a clear view of the world of finances and economics, focusing on the different products that they use or may use. In short, it intends to make citizens aware of the importance of reaching a certain level of knowledge to tackle the challenges that they may face.

 

In particular, the lectures deal with topics such as the family budget, economic indicators, deposits, pension plans and loans. Financial calculations are also explained.

In addition to more than ten business organizations and institutions, 14 universities participate in this programme. All the previous has made Unicaja, one of the first institutions in Spain to launch an initiative of this type, to be one of the most active agents in this field.

 

Since it was created, more than 146,600 people have participated in the different conferences, workshops and lectures developed by Edufinet, of which 108,000 have participated through the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People.

 

Regarding the website www.edufinet.com, which offers systemic and practical information in a question-answer format and where no previous knowledge is required to get the most of the contents, it has registered more than 7.8 million visits, with consultations and access from nearly 180 countries.
