Global Money Week
The goal of Global Money Week is to encourage children, from a young age, to express interest in the world of finances and economics, as well as provide knowledge and develop personal finance management skills. Events during Global Money Week, usually taking place in March, are organised in collaboration with educational institutions, financial market participants, other national institutions and non-governmental organisations.
Global Money Week in Lithuania was first celebrated in 2013 when the Bank of Lithuania joined Child & Youth Finance International.
In 2013, Global Money Week began as a one-day occasion full of events for schoolchildren – excursions, lectures, games, tests and quizzes, yet since 2014 it has grown into a week-long event.
From 2015, the events that are part of Global Money Week are marked with its special logo. It was created on the basis of a drawing by Meda Slivskytė, a pupil at Plungė Old Town School, which in 2014 was chosen as the winner of the Global Money Week logo design contest. The owl is a symbol of education and knowledge, both especially important in managing personal finances.
