This is the opinion of the Deputy Minister of Finance of Russia Sergei Storchak. He stated this on Saturday at the PRO money family financial festival in Moscow, which closed the All-Russian Savings Week, organized within the framework of the Ministry of Finance's project "Assistance in increasing the level of financial literacy of the population and the development of financial education in the Russian Federation." More than three thousand people came to learn how to learn financial literacy, of which about a third are parents.
3 thousand adults and children came to the family festival of financial literacy
"The space of the festival was organized according to all the rules of the city infrastructure: a bank was opened here, where you could get start-up capital, a supermarket, in which more than three thousand units of useful goods were presented, a city fair with a chain of shops and all kinds of workshops, a money museum, an insurance museum and even a financial musical in which the artists sang about money, "the press service of the project said.
In a playful way, the children were told how to competently manage pocket money, some took a course for novice financiers, tested new knowledge in practice (turned game currency into a profitable financial investment), and also learned how to recognize fraudsters and not fall for their tricks.
The festival also included a cultural and educational program, in which children watched an interactive educational performance based on the play by Mexican author Allan Bumian Varela "The Magic Power of the Budget", whose actors in a simple form told the children about the basics of budget planning, cost control and practical finance. For the first time this performance was shown in Russia in May of this year, after the children's "week of savings".
The festival takes place twice a year, the next one is scheduled for spring. You can find out about the date and place of the event on the website vashfinance.rf.
