In 2001, a group of professionals in the financial sector decided to create training for young people between 14 and 18 years old in Scotland. Building on this precedent, the European Commission decided in 2011 to apply this idea more broadly across the Union in over 10 countries. The first pilot test in Catalonia took place in the same year 2011. In 2012, was the first year of EFEC (Financial Education in Catalan Schools ) the financial education program which reached 105 schools and more than 6,600 students. This year the eight edition of the EFEC (Financial Education in Catalan Schools) program is held, which hopes to exceed 400 centers and 18,000 students from the previous one.

This is an example of one of the workshops that took place on March 10 and is part of the eighth edition of the financial education program taught by an EFEC volunteer.
