07: Economic and Financial Education – What Has to be Done?

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

Existing studies dealing with economic and financial education conclude that the current level of knowledge on this topic is highly uneven across society and that there remains considerable room for improvement. This potential inequality of knowledge can disadvantage both the individual and the wider economy. In the breakout session, we will present and discuss the results of a newly commissioned study. What is the actual situation of economic and financial education? What has to be done to guarantee that everybody has access to economic and financial education? Find out during this interactive discussion with experts and pupils from Austrian schools.
