The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has organized a new online workshop for students of the University of Jaen (UJA), with the collaboration of the said institution, to talk about the financial system and its new products: leasing, renting, factoring and reverse factoring. Nearly 180 students have participated in this activity.
With this online workshop, university students have learnt basic concepts related to the financial and banking world, useful for their future professional career.
The Edufinet Project on financial education reinforces online training with the goal of putting at the disposal of all the society groups tools to allow them to improve their financial literacy. For that purpose, it is organizing webinars to explain different concepts and virtual roundtable discussions, to talk about current topics.
The crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has set a limit to in person meetings, resulting in the digital world acquiring a key role in training. In view of this situation and until in person activities are permitted, the Edufinet Project has reinforced its commitment to virtual activities.
Edufinet is promoting the organization of webinars to be broadcasted on its YouTube channel (channel: Proyecto Edufinet). These webinars are expected to be weekly and their live streaming intends to continue improving the financial literacy of citizens.
Since the declaration of the state of emergency in Spain, the Edufinet Project has participated in remote sessions, such as in a workshop organized by the University of Malaga (UMA), and has posted several interviews on its YouTube channel. It has also organized online the 11th Conferences on Financial Education for Young People, as well as roundtable discussions and other activities which can be viewed on the Project’s YouTube channel.
In the exercise of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), during this period Edufinet has continued to make available several online resources to keep in contact with citizens. To that end, it has got the website www.edufinet.com and two specific portals (Edufiemp, for business owners and entrepreneurs, and Edufinext, for young people), as well as YouTube channels and accounts on Twitter and Facebook.
On Edufinet’s website, users have access to activities such as an online course on financial education, financial simulators for loans, pension plans, insurance or saving products, basic financial calculations and Q&A to test what they know about finance.
