WHAT IS EUROPEAN MONEY WEEK?

Monday 12 March 2018 will see the start of the fourth European Money Week, with events organized by national banking associations across Europe, under coordination of the European Banking Federation to highlight financial education. The annual initiative involves 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.

EUROPEAN MONEY QUIZ

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

FINANCIAL EDUCATION AND THE EBF

Financial education is a strategic aspect of the work of the European Banking Federation. Under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer Wim Mijs the federation actively seeks to boost awareness on the benefits of better financial education through events, publications and partnerships.

In 2017 the EBF initiated the creation of the European Platform for Financial Education,  an initiative that aims to promote the need for financial education and to boost financial literacy in Europe, particularly among young people and entrepreneurs, and that also seeks to encourage EU-level leadership in this field. The EBF also is an affiliate member of the OECD International Network on Financial Education and actively works together with the International Federation of Finance Museums.

In 2014 EBF published an overview of good practices in financial education by national banking associaitons. Click here to read it.
