Liechtenstein Bankers Association (LBV)
The Liechtenstein Bankers Association (LBA) and its member banks, as well as the Hand in Hand Anstalt Advisory Board, participated in European Money Week by teaching children and young people how to handle money. Studies show that as many as one in five young people between the ages of 12 and 18 in Liechtenstein is in debt, and already one in three young adults aged 18 to 24 years. To counteract the indebtedness of young people, LBA believe early prevention is of great importance. Providing young people with financial knowledge promotes the responsible use of money and thus helps to avoid debt. Students aged 14 to 18 participated in a financial skills workshop. Experts from the LBA and its member banks, the Hand in Hand Institutes and Caritas Liechtenstein provided children with information on debt prevention and budget planning. Young people learned about the topics of budget, debt traps, types of account, and payment transactions, as well as financing options. Students between 13 and 15 participated in the European Money Quiz, an online competition aimed at helping young people improve their financial literacy. For kindergarten and primary school aged children, the LBA organized a storytelling event for children and their parents. The fairytale, "Money for Sale!", deals with topics of money, consumption and values and helps children learn in a playful way.
