Young People’s View on Finance and Sustainable Development

18 Jun , 14:00–15:15
International Youth Economic Forum
Pavilion G, conference hall G22 (2nd floor)

Among the most pressing issues for young people are improving financial literacy and advancing the sustainability agenda. An appropriate level of financial literacy among young people contributes to making informed financial decisions, increases the ability to plan for the long term, and ensures a higher quality of life. It can also minimize various associated risks and thereby increase financial security. It is no secret that young people are the most open-minded segment of the population. Thus, in addition to being interested in new financial products, they care how the companies interact with society and what overall impact do businesses leave behind, including the economic, environmental, and social components.
