For that purpose, Edufinet has organized several activities, both online and in person, to be developed until next Friday.

 

In particular, the activities developed by Edufinet to join this initiative promoted since 2015 by the Financial Education Plan, prepared by the Bank of Spain and the CNMV, include the presentation of the new web portal EdufiAgro and of a videogame on basic financial concepts for primary education students aged between 8 and 12, who will also be able to attend workshops on financial education. In addition, the project will organize its traditional Lectures on Financial Education for Young People (secondary education and baccalaureate students), the Financial Olympics and the Edufinet Congress.

 

On Monday 4, from 11.30, an event will be hosted at Unicaja Center for Financial Education in Malaga, with the participation of the Head of the Edufinet Project, José M. Domínguez -who will talk about the history and challenges of this initiative-, the General Manager of Fundación Unicaja, Sergio Corral –who will focus on the importance of financial literacy, analyzing the current situation and trends-, and the Head of Sustainability and CSR at Unicaja Banco, José María López –who will talk about the role of sustainable finance in financial education-.

           

The event will be streamed online on the Edufinet Project’s YouTube channel, and the Head of Financial Education at Grupo Unicaja, José Antonio Díaz, will present the programme for the Financial Education Day, with activities aimed at teaching citizens to make sound financial decisions.

 

After those talks, members of the Edufinet team will give a lecture on financial education for baccalaureate students, with focus on sustainable finance, circular economy and some financial products and services.
