The Financial Literacy in Marginalised Communities (FLIMCO) project aims to increase the financial literacy of marginalised, refugee and NEET youth communities who are at an increased disadvantage in day-to-day life due to their comparatively low level of financial literacy.
We aim to provide these groups with the support and training they need to bridge the gap in their skills, knowledge and attitudes towards financial literacy. Throughout the project, we developed 3 outputs which will be presented during 3 conferences/workshops over the course of 3 days:
- Handbook/Guide on the Relationship Between Financial Literacy and the Cultural Aspects of Marginalised Communities
- Framework for Financial Literacy Curriculum
- e-Course on Financial Literacy for Marginalised Communities
Each event will take place from 11:00 - 13:00 on the 28th, 29th, and 30th of September. Every day there will be a presentation on the overall project including successes and challenges, a discussion on the future of financial literacy, workshops where participants can use each output, and a Q&A session.
Invited guests will be representatives of organisations that have influence and are wellestablished within the VET and Adult learning and training sector, locally, regionally and nationally, including teachers, trainers, academic directors and organisation executives (but all are welcome!). It will also include high-up members, leaders and well-respected heads of the target group communities.
It is planned that besides VET and Adult Education authorities in the learning and teaching sector, additional high level representatives of other educational sectors will be invited to attend, from educational organisations, as well as NGOs and charities who have a bond with the target groups.
