World Money Week is taking place from March 18 to 24 this year and will feature a variety of activities in Croatia. The Croatian Association of Banks (HUB) is organizing an extensive program and workshops that will continue throughout the year. In collaboration with the European Investment Bank (EIB), they are running an education program called “Finance for New Generations,” aimed at young entrepreneurs, teachers, and high school students. This program aims to improve financial literacy among young people and encourage new entrepreneurs who are just starting their careers.

The educational program for students and teachers will reach approximately 500 professors and 17,000 students over two years. A digital manual called “My Money, My Job, My Future” will be used for education. Workshops and educational content will be conducted by Štedopis, led by Marina Ralašić, to promote financial awareness. At the same time, workshops for young entrepreneurs titled “I’m My Own Boss” will be organized in partnership with entrepreneur Kristina Ercegović and the portal. These workshops, comprising 13 modules, will provide participants with essential knowledge and tools for success in the entrepreneurial world.

The workshops will be recorded and shared on HUB’s YouTube channel for accessibility to all interested entrepreneurs. These initiatives highlight the importance of cultivating a healthy money mindset from a young age. Marina Ralašić, the manager of Štedopis, emphasizes the significance of these programs in fostering financial literacy among youth.

Štedopis was established in 2015 as an organization dedicated to teaching young people about money management and entrepreneurship. They have created various publications, conducted research, and implemented projects to enhance financial literacy among children and youth. Currently, they are developing new content for secondary schools consisting of a textbook for students and a manual for teachers called “My Money, My Job, My Future.”
