This year, from March 18 to 24, World Money Week is being celebrated in Croatia. The Croatian Association of Banks (HUB) has organized a rich program of workshops and educational content that will continue throughout the year. In collaboration with the European Investment Bank (EIB), they have launched an education program called “Finance for New Generations,” aimed at young entrepreneurs, teachers, and high school students.

The program for students and teachers will reach about 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. Meanwhile, workshops for young entrepreneurs titled “I’m My Own Boss” will be organized in partnership with entrepreneur Kristina Ercegović and the mojnovac.hr portal. These workshops comprise 13 modules and 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 to ensure accessibility to all interested entrepreneurs. These initiatives underscore 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 developed various publications, conducted research, and executed 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.”

The new online textbook covers essential topics like personal finance, economics, career development, and sustainable consumption. Additionally, Štedopis plans to organize workshops and competitions to engage high school students and teachers in promoting financial awareness.
