During Global Money Week 2016, partner organisationds wre able to reach 26,000 children and youth through their continuously innovative activities which included role playing and educational activities in partnership with Museo Mide, and involved the banks local branches and employees. This year, as a result of the strategic collaboration with KidZania, models of a local bank, fire station and insurance company were built and designed for children to perform role plays where they associated the responsible use of money with individual and collective values. Through this model city, children learnt about savings and preparing for emergencies through the different roles they played and through a guided dialog. This programme was the first and only of its kind within all the Financial Literacy Initiatives globally.

Furthermore, the Interactive Museum of Economics (MIDE) deployed a series of interactive and fun activities, where children performed four activities which helped them become aware of the responsible use of money:

  • Discovering the World through 15 Currencies: children took a journey to different countries using their local coins. They explored a series of numismatics, their colours, forms and representative icons. Afterwards, there was a dialogue about the various institutions that provide the bills and coins throughout the world, as well as some money exchanging exercises.
  • Value Scale: the children made daily life decisions, analysing a series of possibilities with different values, each one associated with each decision. The task became complicated when the children had to see that each decision taken balances with their ethic formation and financial decisions. This activity enhanced the children’s reflections on values related to financial decision present in daily life and the importance of keeping it in balance.
  • A Savings adventure: children and youth learnt about savings and the road to their own goals and dreams.
  • Mint your own coin: children were able to create their own money.

Educación Financiera Banamex also participated with four very interesting activities throughout the country. Educaravan, for example, conducted various educational activities, such as workshops, conferences and movies in motion, with the aim of sensitizing people in relation to the importance of financial and economic education, and to help them develop or strengthen these skills. Additionally, Educación Financiera Banamex put in place a moving fair, an activity that promoted an entrepreneurial culture and provided visitors with financial tools that may contribute to the establishment of goals in order to improve the life quality and generate general and collective wellness. Movies in Motion, another of the activities put in place by Educación Financiera Banamex during Global Money Week 2016, consisted of three mobile theaters with capacity for 91 people. Inside the theatre, financial education films were projected free of charge for all people to see. Finally, an economic education programme took part in the Financial Park, introducing youngsters to financial planning. During the programme, using a simulator, children and youth had the opportunity to understand the basics of finance, to analyse different daily situations and how to make a budget in a practical way.
