Global Money Week

Ring Around the World!

As part of the Global Money Week tradition, Stock Exchanges around the world will launch the GMW celebrations by inviting children and youth to ring their stock exchange bell! Ring Around the World kick-starts the global celebrations for the Week of financial education, inclusion, and livelihood awareness – and this year we are planning for the bell to ring louder and further than ever!

Since the start of Global Money Week , many of the world’s leading stock and securities exchanges have taken part in the celebrations as a symbolic commitment to young people, their dreams, and their financial futures. Activities included youth participation in the “ring the bell” ceremony to open and/or close the day’s trading, financial education workshops, dialogues, and/or guided tours. Youth enjoyed this unique opportunity to speak with exchange executives, speak about entrepreneurship, and to share their views and opinions.
