Witek – The Sweetek and What He Learned in Bee COINs: Financial Education Debunked

Bee COINs: Financial Education Debunked was a 10-day youth exchange that took place in The Netherlands from 24 April till 5 May 2017. It gathered 42 participants from 7 different countries and empowered them to learn from each other about financial education. The project is funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the EU.
What is financial education for you?

It’s learning about how you should treat money, how to spend it, how to earn it.

What was your favourite session and why?

My favourite session definitely was the theatre, we had fun and we learnt how to express ourselves.

What are the three most important things you learned about financial education during the youth exchange?

I had changed my opinion about money, I learnt about earning and spending.

How did your life change after the training? Do you save more? Do you have a bank account? Do you invest?

I think I save more, but maybe I am a niggard 😀 People in this project changed me a lot, but in a positive way. I don’t have a bank account and I am too young to invest.

Your opinion on Erasmus+ projects?

Erasmus+ project is an amazing way how to get new contacts, how to learn something (improve your speech, English, things about the topic of the project). Amazing thing!!

How did you experience The Netherlands?

I really loved this country. It’s expensive, that’s true, but people are so kind, really good thing is that everyone speaks English. The bad side is a high fine we got in our journey 🙂

Share 3 personal highlights from the whole experience?

Contacts, improvement of my English, opinion about money.

Did you manage to read the book you received as a gift at the end of the youth exchange? What did you learn from it?

I haven’t read it yet, sorry but I will.
