Nearly 40 experts from different disciplines will meet from Wednesday, 15 November, until Friday, 17 November, at the 6th Financial Education Congress, organized by Unicaja's Edufinet Project and whose central theme is the challenges that this discipline has to face in a context of transition towards sustainability.

 

This new edition, sponsored by Funcas Educa, is entitled 'Financial education in a context of transition towards sustainability' and is divided into 16 sessions and five colloquiums.

 

The congress can be followed both in person, at the Centro Cultural Fundación Unicaja in Malaga, and online, through the Edufinet Congress website, where it is still possible to register for free.

 

The opening ceremony on Wednesday has been attended by the head of the Edufinet Project, José M. Domínguez; the director general of Funcas, Carlos Ocaña, who spoke online; the director general of Fundación Bancaria Unicaja, Sergio Corral, and José María López, representing Unicaja Banco.           

 

In the different sessions and round tables, participants will emphasize the need to address financial education without losing sight of the current context of transition towards sustainability.

 

Speakers and topics

 

The speakers include representatives from the Bank of Spain, the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV), CECA, the Spanish Institute of Analysts, the Academy of Social Sciences and the Environment of Andalusia, Analistas Económicos de Andalucía, the Smart City Cluster of Malaga, Instituto Santalucía and the National Police, among others.

 

There will also be speakers from universities such as those of Malaga (UMA), Cordoba (UCO), Huelva (UHU), Navarra (UNAV), Complutense de Madrid (UCM), Rey Juan Carlos (URJC), Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED), Harvard, University College Dublin or the Instituto Universitario de Investigación Ortega y Gasset of Mexico.

 

As for the topics to be addressed, these will include cryptocurrencies and cybercrime; the digitalization of finance, moving from ATMs to Artificial Intelligence; financial culture, tax ethics and tax compliance; the impact of banking laws on the social and political evolution of Spain, or monetary policy and its struggle to contain inflation levels.

 

The 15 years of the first Financial Education Plan will also be analyzed and future challenges will be identified; the experimental trajectory of this subject will be evaluated, and the experts will try to establish the reasons that lead to continue making bad financial decisions despite having a higher level of financial knowledge.

 

Other issues to be addressed are the sustainability of pension systems; the points in common between the perspectives of supervisors and users of financial services in relation to ESG criteria, and the importance of financial education in family businesses and family protocols, as well as in the face of climate change.

 

Discussion will also cover the relationship between human rights and financial education, as well as with corporate codes of ethics, pawnbrokers (Montes de Piedad), notaries and the training of junior athletes. The topics issued through Facebook by financial institutions will be analyzed too.
