Sustainability: S.A.V.E. launches activities abroad for the first time
The Savings Museum's S.A.V.E. - Sustainability Action Voyage Experience project is launching activities abroad for the first time in the form of a competition promoting financial education and awareness of economic and environmental sustainability in eight countries where the International Subsidiary Banks Division is present.
The goal: to help teenagers understand the complexity of environmental sustainability choices, in light of their economic implications and the potential for inclusion and reduction of inequalities they entail.
Target audience: high school students from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Egypt, Hungary, Moldova, Romania, Serbia – countries where the International Subsidiary Banks Division is present.
How it was done: after an introductory lecture given by tutors from FLITIN – the Financial Literacy International Network, the students from each country were invited to map unresolved problems in their city in environmental and social terms and to carry out project works proposing solutions consistent with economic and environmental sustainability objectives.
The jury: chaired by Intesa Sanpaolo Chairman Gian Maria Gros-Pietro and comprising Marco Elio Rottigni, Chief International Subsidiary Banks Division Intesa Sanpaolo, Luisa Ferreira, Head of Social Programme EIB Institute and Giovanna Paladino, Director and Curator of the Savings Museum, assessed the eight best entries.
The winners: the winner will receive the gift of a forest of 30 trees planted for the occasion in a developing country, which can be geolocated and monitored thanks to a special app; the groups that come second and third will receive the gift of the adoption of 20 polar bears and 10 endangered sea turtles in collaboration with the WWF.
