High-level conference on global and European trends in financial education


22-23 May 2014 - Istanbul, Turkey

Co-organised by the OECD, the Capital Markets Board, the Treasury and the Central Bank of Turkey and VISA Europe, the conference gathered around 300 participants from public institutions, private sector companies as well as the research, civil and media communities from over 70 countries and international organisations.

Participants discussed recent developments and challenges in financial education, with a focus on:

  • further developing national strategies for financial education and addressing implementation challenges
  • fostering positive behavioural changes, in particular taking advantage of innovation in education practices and new delivery channels (including eLearning and social media)


"Simple but essential guiding rules such as the one just finalised by the OECD International Network on Financial Education (INFE) [OECD/INFE Guidelines for Private and not-for-profit Stakeholders in Financial Education] should be applied when delivering financial education."

OECD Deputy Secretary-General Rintaro Tamaki
