Event Description

Join us to discuss financial literacy as a key transversal, supporting long-term outcomes like entrepreneurship and employability!

JA Europe and Visa launched a new research project on financial education, to highlight good practices and analyse the financial skills gap faced by young people in Europe. The project combines:

  • A pan-European survey of 500 members of the business community to identify the demand of financial skills
  • 5 national case studies based on the good practices from Poland, Romania, Spain, Turkey, and UK

The Financial Education Round Table will present the results of the research and discuss how to implement its policy recommendations.
