Getting Fighting Fit for Money Week 2015

Posted to Money Week on 10-06-2015

Planning is well underway for this year’s Money Week, which will kick off on August 31 and run until September 6.

Once again, the Commission for Financial Capability will be hosting the week, which is now in its fourth year and is supported by the financial literacy community nationwide.

The theme is ‘Get Your Money Fighting Fit’ and events are being planned in schools and workplaces, businesses and community groups, organised by everyone from banks and budget advisors to teachers and radio show producers.

Watch highlights from last year:

The idea is to get everyone talking about money so they are comfortable and confident enough to ask questions when they need help, whether that’s organising a loan or saving for the future.

It’s a core aspect of the ‘Talk’ stream of our National Strategy for Financial Literacy, which aims to drive a cultural shift around our willingness to talk about money.

There will be a range of activities, events, workshops and seminars and a wealth of information to help you build your financial capability.

There will also be competitions, including the Commission’s Instagram challenge for high school students: we’ll be asking teens to whip out their cameras and show us what a ‘wealthy life’ means to them. More details of this, and other new initiatives, will follow in the run-up to the week itself.

In the meantime, you can register your event, find out more about the support the Commission can provide and see what else has already been planned at
