This training activity, which has been held remotely, has been developed within the framework of the collaboration agreement that the Edufinet Project has with the UMA for the promotion of financial education programmes among the citizens, and, in this case, among Baccalaureate students.

 

In particular, this workshop has registered a participation of twenty gifted Baccalaurate students, who have received an overall view of the financial products and services currently available in the market, as well as other topics related to the financial system.

 

The activity has addressed topics such as variable income products, profitability and risks of shares or their valuation and operation. All of these topics have been explained in a practical manner through a simulation game. As a complement to these contents, the students have also received specific training on financial calculations.

 

This way, the project intends to enhance transparence, security and responsibility in the development of the relationships between citizens and financial intermediaries, leading, therefore, to higher market efficiency.

 

GuíaMe-AC-UMA is an enrichment programme based on workshops covering all the knowledge fields and developed by researchers and PhDs lecturers of the UMA, aimed at high-school pre-university students identified as gifted.

 

Edufinet Project, a pioneering financial education initiative

 

The Edufinet Project is a financial education project pioneering in Spain whose work has been recognized with several awards. It currently collaborates with more than twenty institutions and business organizations, as well as universities.

 

Edufinet is currently promoting the organization of webinars to be broadcasted on its YouTube channel (channel: Proyecto Edufinet). These webinars are intended to be held weekly and their live streaming seeks to continue improving the financial literacy of citizens.

 

In that line, since last year, the Edufinet Project has participated in remote sessions and has posted several interviews on its YouTube channel. It has also organized online the final of the 11th Financial Olympics, which put an end to 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.

 

Likewise, the 3rd Financial Education Congress was held remotely from 16 to 20 November. It registered a participation of more than 500 people and the collaboration of over 60 experts from different fields.

 

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 a YouTube channel and accounts on Twitter and Facebook.
