Global Money Week (GMW) promotes efforts aimed at improving the financial literacy of young people. The ultimate goal of the campaign is to ensure that all children and young people have access to high-quality financial education, they learn about money matters and are able to take smart financial decisions that can improve their future financial resilience and financial well-being. Throughout 10 editions, starting 2012, the campaign has reached over 53 million children and young people in 176 countries worldwide.
“Plan your money, plant your future” is the official theme of GMW2023, which took place on 20-26 March. This theme aims at raising awareness about the importance of adopting a responsible, informed and forward-looking approach in making financial decisions. It also recognises that future individual financial well-being is strictly linked to the health of the planet and of the society as a whole.
The GMW2023 Global Launch represented an opportunity to weigh the importance of thinking about one’s own future when making financial decisions but also – in a wider perspective – the importance of financial education as an instrument to favour a more sustainable and inclusive growth. The event was co-organised by the OECD/INFE and the Bank of Italy. The Launch was held digitally on 20 March 2023.
