Global Money Week in Czech Republic was marked with two Events in Krapupy nad Vltavou and Poděbrady.

On the 19th March 2013, the first event took place at the Parish Charity in Kralupy nad Vltavou. The participants in the workshop were children and youth aged 12-24. They were given the opportunity to discuss the role of money in their lives, focusing on the role of financial institutions and programs, the negative impacts of money, the problem of debts and its consequences, etc. Since the participants were familiar with negative aspects of money and debts in general, the organizers tried to highlight ways in which to approach and remedy these problems in a positive manner.

On 20th March 2013, the second event took place at the Václav Havel Primary School in Poděbrady. The participants in the workshop were children aged 13-15 years. The organized program highlighted the principles of Financial Literacy (the role of money, banks, financial institutions and financial mechanisms in general) with both positive and negative aspects of money.
