Each year, the Money Week – Woch vun de Suen is organised in Luxembourg. Similarly to GMW, it aims to teach children about money matters and responsible money management. Understanding the value of money, teaching them to manage money better and thus raise awareness of the importance of budget control for their future are the priorities of this project. The first training programme of 2021 dedicated to financial vulnerable people, the Zuumer Academy was launched during the Week. The Academy consists of different modules of 1.5 hours each, held over 10 days on topics such as savings, payments, budget management, understanding risk, and other. These have been specifically created to help the students to manage their personal finances with confidence and to understand their relationship with their bank. In addition, Luxembourg took part in the European Money Quiz and launched an awareness campaign on banking and digitalisation for elderly people. The Week was led by the ABBL Foundation for Financial Education in collaboration with ABBL members, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Consumer Protection, the Chamber of Commerce, and others. ING Luxembourg focused on teachers’ training on money matters.

Global Money Week and European Money Week are celebrated in Luxembourg in conjunction with the Luxembourg Money Week, titled “Woch vun de Suen”. This initiative aims to teach children in primary education the basic rules of responsible money management. Understanding the value of money, allows young people aged 10 to 12 to better manage their money and save, thus raising awareness of the importance of budget control for their future. The Association deems it essential to introduce financial literacy from an early age, in order to make children attentive to thoughtful and responsible consumption. Thanks to the commitment of the volunteers, the students were able to benefit from a playful two-hour animation. The initiatives were organised by the ABBL Foundation for Financial Education with the support of the Chamber of Commerce. The “Woch vun de Suen” has the support of the Ministry of National Education, Childhood and Youth.

In GMW 2016, the activities that took place in Luxembourg during the Week, designed for students of 11 years, included:

  • Interventions in the classroom with a focus on a responsible purchasing behaviour. The courses were animated by volunteers in collaboration with teachers. The pedagogical material was represented by an educational workbook called “Impuls”, made by Inter-Actions through Service d’Information et de Conseil en matière de Surendettement (SICS).
  • A game “Eurodéo” which was played in class. Eurodéo helped students to learn to distinguish between desires and needs and also to prioritize expenses in a budgeting overview.
  • Visits to the Bank Museum at Banque et Caisse d’ Epargne de L’Etat (BCEE). During the visit to the Bank Museum, there was a small competition about the different topics shown during the visit, including a beautiful porcelain piggy bank as a prize.
