Financial Literacy Week

Financial Literacy Week 2017

Save money or not? ... That is the question for many of us. It was the central theme of the second edition of the Financial Literacy Week which Wikifin.be (FSMA) organized with the support of many partners and this from March 27 to April 2, 2017.

The purpose of the initiative is initiating a broad debate about money and directing the spotlight on financial education. Throughout the week, various activities are organized in Belgium, both for education and for the general public.

Euronext cooperates with the Financial Literacy Week and organised on 27 March, like last year, the official kick-off in its premises with a bell ceremony. The winning teams of the competition Wikifin @ School Challenge: Coloma Plus (Mechelen) and Institut Saint-Boniface (Ixelles) had the honour to ring the bell in the presence of Finance Minister Johan Van Overtveldt and the Chairman of the FSMA, Jean-Paul Servais.

Immediately after the Bell Ceremony, HE Queen Mathilde opened the national conference "Financial Education” with a speech and offered the winning team the Wikifin @ School Challenge price.

Also during this conference the results were announced of a major study on the savings culture of the Belgians: "Saving ... or not?" Why do Belgians save so much? What does influence their behaviour?

Thereafter, the main actors of the financial education in Belgium entered into debate about the challenges they faced and the role of financial education in the society of tomorrow.  The conclusions of this study can be consulted here (NL). The ministers Kris Peeters, Johan Van Overtveldt and Marie-Martine Schyns participated in these discussions.
