ROUND TABLE: Financial Education in the 21st century (hosted by JA Europe & VISA)

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 combined:

  • 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 presented the results of the research and discussed financial literacy as a key transversal, supporting long-term outcomes like entrepreneurship and employability!
