The 6th Financial Education Congress of the Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has been closed this Friday, having had nearly 500 registered participants, in person and online, and, so far, more than 4,600 views of the videos published in its social media.

 

The congress, which was sponsored by Funcas Educa, took place at the Centro Cultural Fundación Unicaja in Malaga, as well as online, and was entitled 'Financial education in a context of transition towards sustainability'.

 

Specifically, throughout 16 sessions and five colloquiums, from last Wednesday until today, about 40 experts from different disciplines have addressed current issues and their link with financial education, such as cryptocurrencies and cybercrime; the digitization of finance, moving from ATMs to Artificial Intelligence; financial culture, tax ethics and tax compliance; the impact of banking laws in the social and political evolution of Spain, or monetary policy and its struggle to contain inflation levels.

 

An analysis was also made of the 15 years of the first Financial Education Plan, identifying future challenges; the experimental trajectory of this subject was evaluated, as well as 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.

 

The relationship between human rights and financial education was also discussed, as well as the relationship with corporate codes of ethics, Montes de Piedad, notaries and the training of junior athletes, and the topics issued through Facebook by financial institutions were also analyzed.

 

Financial education can be a strategic tool, since a better understanding of financial concepts and products will enable citizens to be more aware of risks and opportunities and, in short, to make informed decisions.

 

Speakers

 

The speakers at the congress included 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.

 

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

 

The Edufinet Project has been promoting financial education activities for nearly two decades, with the collaboration of 17 universities and more than a dozen business entities and organizations.
