Initiatives for children

Surveys show that children want to learn about money in school. Danske Bank has therefore launched financial literacy measures aimed at children, their parents and their teachers. The initiatives include materials that can be used by the children alone, with their parents and in school.

Advice from leading experts 
 

How do you speak with your child about money?

Parents’ attitudes towards money and finances have a great influence on their children’s ability to make good financial decisions as adults. In 2012, we launched the “0-18” online initiative for parents with children up to the age of 18. On websites in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway, parents can find information and tools to facilitate a dialogue about money and finances with their children. The information is age-specific and deals with a wide range of issues – from children’s first pocket money and jobs to managing their own finances.

Is a 5-year-old too young to learn about money?

From the age of three or four, children often ask questions about money and its value. We know this from a study that Danske Bank commissioned from a research institute.

That is one reason we launched Moneyville as an app for both iOS and Android tablets and phones in 2013. So it is even easier for children to play Moneyville.

How much do 10-15 year-olds know about finances

We conducted a survey of 10-15 year olds’ understanding of personal finance and attitude towards money. The survey showed that 10-15 year-olds are already consumers who have their own money (for example, 43% have used their mobile phones for shopping) and are interested in learning more about it.

Kuno Sørensen

“The material gives kids aged 5-9 a good and fundamental introduction to the concept of money. At the same time it is both funny and entertaining. It is laudable that Danske Bank has chosen to invest in this learning material, without making it a matter of marketing towards the children.”

- Kuno Sørensen, Psychologist, Save the Children, Denmark
