During GMW2018, KNF involved schools from all levels of education in both cities and small towns in Poland. Throughout the Week, almost 10,500 children and youth actively took part in a wide range of activity tailored to the participants’ age. All forms of activities gave children and youth the opportunity to understand why “Money Matters Matter” and to help develop their financial knowledge and skills, as to make them financially independent and employable in the future.

The youngest children created money boxes from recyclable materials and posters on the GMW2018 theme, “Money Matters Matter”. Older students entered a financial literacy skill competition and an art competition, after which the prize-winning posters, collages, infographics were displayed in an exhibition.

Moreover, youth engaged themselves in GMW action by preparing multimedia presentations to use during workshops, lectures and lessons. Additionally, they participated in activities such as short-movie making, carrying out personal budget surveys, preparing classroom newspapers, broadcast programs, and making a school blog on GMW.
