The UMA, through the Erasmus+ FLY project, joins the commemorative events of the financial education

MALAGA, Spain - Oct. 5, 2023 - PRLog -- The University of Malaga (UMA) joins the events organised on the first Monday of October throughout Spain, on the occasion of the "Financial Literacy Day", represented by the members of the international Erasmus+ project FLY (Financial Literacy for Inclusion - Financial Literacy for Inclusion). During this day, the FLY coordinator in Malaga and UMA teacher Francisca García Lopera, presented the main advances achieved by FLY, an initiative co-funded by the European Union and managed through the Vice-Rectorate for International Mobility of the UMA.

More than a hundred people gathered at the auditorium of the University of Malaga in El Ejido for a training day on financial literacy, during which the most significant advances achieved by the consortium of eight organisations from five EU countries (Belgium, Spain, France, Italy and Turkey) that make up FLY were presented. The creation of a multilingual Open Educational Resources (OER) platform (with videos, checklists, infographics and tests); the offer of face-to-face courses aimed at the most vulnerable groups in the financial sphere; and the dissemination of regular reports on media literacy are some of the actions carried out in the last two years.

Aspects such as financial security; identifying and evaluating situations related to the personal economy and the collective good; expanding notions about the value of money and savings or about the risk and needs of the economic decisions that are taken, whether they are savings, investment, indebtedness or transactions, for example, are some of the topics that FLY works on. The training aimed at the population with a lower level of financial knowledge, skills and competences is validated by experts in finance and digital technologies in adult education.

Along with Professor García Lopera, José Antonio Díaz Campos and Francisco Carvajal Berrocal took part in the event, representing: the event's promoter, Unicaja Banco's Edufinet Project and Unicaja Foundation, and the Senior Business Advice Volunteers association Secot Málaga, respectively. Attendees also had the opportunity to participate in an interactive workshop organised by Google Malaga on digital skills and financial security.
