20: From Wallet to Smartphone – Challenges and Opportunities of the Digital World of Finance

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

The rapid development of the digital world of finance and the transition to cashless paying are changing the realities of finance and consumption. There are new opportunities, but also new risks: the world of finance has become too complex for the young generation of Europeans and they are carelessly running into debt. There is an urgent need for efficient methods of conveying financial knowledge. This breakout session considers the digitisation of the world of finance as an opportunity. How can we as a business community and society meet the social challenges of cashless payment and use them as opportunities for education?
