Unicaja’s Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has organized a workshop in Malaga on financial education applied to the video games industry. The activity was addressed to students of Advanced Vocational Training (Ciclos Formativos de Grado Superior).

           

The workshop, held at La Fábrica del Videojuego in Malaga and organized together with the company Kaiju, has focused on basic topics of the economy and finance related to the video games industry, so that students may act autonomously in their career.

 

The topics covered have included financial education, the importance of finance in the video games industry, micro-transactions in videogames, entrepreneurship, data sector at a world and European level and the main companies in the sector.

 

On the other hand, Edufinet is developing a videogame, with the technical support of Kaiju, for users to get, in an easy and funny way, a clear view of the financial and economic world, thus promoting financial literacy and providing citizens, especially the young, with the skills required for their daily use.

 

Edufinet Project

 

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

 

In addition to more than ten institutions and business organizations, 16 universities participate in this project. Since it was launched, more than 152,000 people have participated in the different workshops, conferences, seminars or courses organized, of which more than 108,000 have attended the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People.

 

This school year, Edufinet is organizing the 3rd Workshops on Financial Education for Advanced Vocational Training, with the goal of providing the participants with a clear view of the economic and financial world.

 

In addition to those activities, Edufinet also develops the 1st Workshops on Financial Education for Primary Education Students, workshops for adults or a screening series of financial films, and it is working in initiatives such as the publication of a Financial Guide in English, a business plan simulator for new projects or a microsite on fintech.

 

As for the website of the Edufinet Project (www.edufinet.com), it has received 7.8 million visits from nearly 180 countries. Edufinet has two additional portals with specific contents: one for young people (Edufinext) and one for business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp).
