On money and financial literacy

KB is the Main Partner of the Global Money Week international project. Its purpose is to promote financial literacy and raise awareness of financial well-being across generations. Business owners, schools, family centres, libraries, and individuals joined last year’s edition under the title Learn. Save. Earn.

Lectures, workshops, discussions, and interactive debates with experts were organised across the country to promote the financial education of children and young people. The GMW target groups included pupils, students, teachers, and expert circles, as well as the public and groups at risk of excessive debt and socially excluded groups. In all, 169 countries and more than 53,000 organisations joined the financial literacy week in 2019. Some 17,000 children and teenagers joined the event in the Czech Republic, and gained the knowledge required for prudent money management.
