From Monday 12 March until 18 March 2018 the fourth European Money Week took place, with events organised by national banking associations across Europe, under coordination of the European Banking Federation to highlight financial education. The annual initiative involved young people in more than 30 countries, with activities ranging from classroom sessions to seminars and conferences, all seeking to improve financial literacy through better financial education.
The European Money Quiz is a new initiative to put the financial knowledge of 13-15-year-olds to the test. Kids in 30 European countries will play against each other. First, there will be a national competition between classrooms, with a live Kahoot! quiz where thousands of classrooms can directly play against eachother. In most countries these contests will be played during or around European Money Week in March. The winners of these national competitions then will be invited to travel to Brussels for the European Money Quiz finals on Tuesday 8 May. Visit our European Money Quiz page
