    Financial literacy is essentially about an individual's ability to manage money. Recently, financial literacy has been measured at different levels (among young people, the older population) and by different organisations (e.g. OECD, PISA surveys). This shows the increasing importance of knowing basic financial concepts and the potential consequences of one's decisions that have financial implications.

Financial literacy is receiving increasing attention. It is included in the project to redesign the curricula for primary and secondary schools in Slovenia, where it is addressed within entrepreneurship in the broadest sense of the term. Together with digital and sustainability competences, this means redesigning the curricula and empowering young people in this area throughout the entire education vertical. In particular, knowledge in this area is also important in view of the fact that the consequences of a financial decision can be seen in the long term, and the most common instrument used by individuals and households is a loan – most often a long-term “commitment” with a bank, which, if not properly planned, can have enormous negative consequences both in monetary and personal terms. It is therefore important to know the basics of personal finance, the underlying risks and investment alternatives, so that we can then seek detailed information from financial institutions or professionals. To survive in turbulent times, financial literacy is one of the basic tools of survival.
