Learn Money Week – Day 2 & 3 – International!


Financial education went global over the weekend of Learn Money Week with sessions in both Italy and the UK.

In Milan, staff from the ethical bank, Banca Popolare Etica did their bit to raise awareness of money lessons delivering Laboratorio di Educazione Finanziaria (LEF – literally meaning “Financial Literacy Workshop”).

Young people tackled an enterprise word-search and learnt how to manage a family budget. They even had their own mascot, Spino the hedghog!

A score of 14-15 year olds also tested their entrepreneurial skills and were challenged to create a real business plan for a social enterprise with “Mi metto in proprio!” (“I’ll set up my own business) workshops.

There was also a confrence side to the initiative with speakers from universities, associations, sustainable finance organizations and the municipality of Milan – discussing how to establish a broader network of financial education initiatives in Italy.

In the UK, MyBnk had a special Youth Advisory Panel gathering where a dozen young people gave us critical feedback on programme material.

Their notes help us refine what we deliver in the classroom and make quality resources even better.


And in a Learn Money Week bonus, here’s one of our educators in a funny hat.
