The workshop  “Money and Sustainability: the challenge of  Sustainable Finance begins at School” and it will be held at the 8th WEEC World Environmental Education Congress in Goteborg, Sweden, between the 29 of June and 2 of July 2015. 

The objectives are examining the different ways in which financial education is understood, highlighting the links between a responsible use of money and environmental sustainability, focusing on how important it is to provide children with the knowledge that how they manage their money will have an impact on their lives and the environment.

The workshop will focus on promoting a fruitful debate, creating networks among actors from different backgrounds, drafting a thematic publication and a planning document to support the WEEC network in future discussions on the links between education in environmental sustainability and economic-financial education.
