Money Thematic Weeks for general education institutions

  • Published on December 9, 2019

The Money Thematic Week was launched as a joint initiative of the Ministry of Human Capacities and the Hungarian Bank Alliance and Money Compass Foundation.

From 2017 the Ministry of Human Capacities as the coordinator and program host inserted the program in the official agenda of the school year, making it more visible and accessible for schools in general education (ISCED 1-3 levels). The Thematic Week is centred around improving financial literacy while raising customer consciousness and shaping attitudes towards sustainability.

From 2019 there are two strands within the thematic week: financial culture and entrepreneurship, with the participation of Junior Achievement Hungary.

In 2019, the program reached 1235 schools with over 205000 students involving about 700 volunteers.  The program providing thematic guidance (including lesson plans, presentations, videos, digital platform, glossaries, background materials, webinars, sample activities and lessons) for teachers and schools to improve financial competences and culture was recognised by the Global Money Week.

Shaping students’ and teachers’ attitudes is part of the program’s mission, and addressing issues within sustainable consumption is a key element with topics and project ideas linked to the program.
