The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, broadens the target audience to teach financial education and includes Primary Education students. For that purpose, it is organizing the Workshops on Financial Education for Primary Education Children, aimed at children aged between 10 and 12 and to take place throughout the country.

 

The goal of these workshops is to promote, in an easy way, financial education for children in the last two years of Primary Education, focusing on those basic financial and economic concepts that may be useful for them when they have to make financial decisions in a future.

 

The workshops will consist of a short presentation and some games and examples that combine financial education and maths to support the explanation of the contents, and will encourage reflection on concepts such as money, savings or debts. Students will have to use an abacus.

 

Financial videogame

 

Edufinet has also designed a videogame for primary education students, with free download both for IOS and Android, and which seeks to provide children with a funny approach to financial decisions.

 

All of the above has been presented today within the framework of the activities organized this week by Edufinet to commemorate the Financial Education Day, promoted by the Bank of Spain and the National Securities Market Commission (Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores, CNMV), under the motto ‘Your finances, also sustainable’.

This activity for primary education students joins the Lectures on Financial Education for Young People and the Financial Olympics, which reach their 13th edition and are aimed at secondary education and baccalaureate students, as well as the Lectures on Financial Education for Vocational Training Students, which reach their 5th edition.

 

EdufiAgro

 

Likewise, the launch of the new specific portal EdufiAgro has also been presented. This portal intends to raise awareness of the importance of financial literacy in the agricultural sector.

 

In addition to this new microsite, Edufinet website includes other sections such as EdufiSport (financial education and sports), EdufiTech (new technologies applied to finance), Edufiblog (blog on current financial topics) and EdufiAcademics (adacemic works on financial education), as well as two specific portals: Edufinext, for young people, and Edufiemp, addressed to business owners and entrepreneurs.

Financial Education Congress

 

Others activities carried out during this week have included the presentation of the 4th Edufinet Financial Education Congress which, under the motto ‘Financial Education for a time of paradigm shift’, will be held on 17, 18 and 19 November.

 

The congress will gather more than 30 experts from different areas and intends to be a meeting point for the different agents and stakeholders involved in financial education, to analyse the current situation to identify trends and points of interest, and to share knowledge and experiences.

 

            This year the congress will be streamed online but participants may also attend in person at Malaga Financial Education Center. Participation, which requires prior registration, is already open on Edufinet website (https://www.edufinet.com/iv-congreso-de-educacion-financiera).
