Project Number: 2021-1-DE02-KA220-ADU-000035188
The GOLDEN SKILLS project aims to equip parents with the right tools and know how to be able to teach their kids about finance and financial literacy. Financial literacy is a key competence and needs to be regarded as such. It is as essential a skill for inclusion as any other form of literacy. People without appropriate financial literacy skills are marginalised and excluded from many of the quality of life options that many Europeans take for granted.

The project team will develop a total of 32 teaching tools for teenagers aged 13 to 19, focusing on topics such as Money and its importance in everyday life to Borrowing money.
