The mission of the programme «Finansoaktywni» is to teach young people financial management. This year’s edition runs under the slogan «Budget. Plan of Action!». Students learn about the benefits of responsible expenditure planning, where public finances come from, and how to support their local community through participatory budgeting.
«We want young people to realise how important it is to plan their expenses wisely in everyday life and that responsible money management pays off. We are building people’s awareness that your delivery and validity, can in the formation and placement of their neighbourhood and, by the way, be a bast in the placement of the created creation. I invite both students and their teachers to participate in the Financially Active», says Minister of Finance Magdalena Rzeczkowska.
