Welcome to the FinLiCo Website!
Financial literacy is the ability to understand money matters, to manage credit and debt and to make sound financial decisions.
Considering the nowadays economic situation it is urgent that citizens are given the appropriate instruments to manage their budgets and to become more aware of the many products and financial services that financial institutions are making available.
The project aims to improve the financial literacy competencies of adult learners to help prepare them for the challenges and temptations of the consumer society and to help prevent people getting into debt. In order to accomplish this, the project has developed a toolbox of activities and exercises that can be used with adult learners, a handbook for trainers and suggested curricua. The products have been developed, validated and disseminated amongst stakeholders, training institutions and public bodies across the eight European countries in the project.
