Online training for
young financial influencers
There is a direct positive relationship between financial literacy and well-being and we can help you connect the dots.
The key to a complex world
The project aims to design, develop and offer to the young people, aged 19-29, an online training provision to support them in making informed and confident financial decisions as economic actors, producers, consumers, professionals, entrepreneurs, employees, considering that there is a direct positive relationship between financial literacy and the well-being of the individuals.
Financial literacy is a core life skill for participating in modern society. Young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world where they will eventually need to take charge of their financial future. Appropriate knowledge and skills to deal with non-economic crises, which first implicitly, but soon after, explicitly affect economic well-being, can address a metalevel of financial literacy, where a high level of understanding of how finances at the personal level function, would compensate more effectively.
An age-appropriate approach
The first financial knowledge necessary to become independent and self-sufficient has essential consequences in terms of how prepared young people are to break out on their own. Low understanding on topics such as personal saving, investment, bank issues, housing loans, and mortgages, income tax, insurance needs, etc., may have a negative impact on financial behaviours and attitudes regarding rational buying, consumer awareness issues, educational/professional career, etc.
To better help the young to apply strategies for their economic well-being, there must be in place age-appropriate approaches and tools, designed and delivered to this particular target demographic group and their sociocultural profile, looking into the development of financial literacy as an essential for long-term financial well-being, that is, as a key life skill.
