Responsible finance for young Poles

The BPCC will hold a meeting for the two policy groups at its offices on Wednesday 14 June (09:00-12:30) to discuss how the financial services sector should respond to the rising indebtedness of Poland's 18-34 year olds.

According to BIG Info Monitor, the levels of debt owed by this age group increased by 40% between 2014 and 2015! There is a clear need for an educational programme to explain to young people how to act responsibly when dealing with financial matters. This joint policy group meeting, aimed at CSR practitioners in the broadly-defined financial services sector is intended to be an open discussion to share best practice and to consider how to educate this demographic group as to responsible financial behaviour.
