Edufinet, the financial education project promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, participated this week in the Global Money Week, an initiative promoted by the OECD and which this year has the theme ‘Plan your money, plant your future’.

 

The goal of Global Money Week is to raise awareness on the importance of basic education in finance. To this end, Edufinet has developed a broad programme during these days, with sessions on financial education and multimedia content.

 

The initiatives carried out by members of the Edufinet Project included a talk on basic financial concepts at IES Fuengirola Nº 1 in this Malaga town, and conferences on personal finance and scams at IES Lucus Solis in Sanlúcar la Mayor (Seville), in which the current economic situation was also analyzed.

 

In addition, a webinar commemorating World Water Day was held on Edufinet's YouTube channel, and the article ‘Montes de Piedad: a unique value proposition for young people’ was published on its blog.

 

An interview was also conducted with several of the finalists of the 13th Financial Olympics, in which they talked about money. The interview can be seen on Edufinet's YouTube channel and it has also been transferred to a podcast.
