How is money created – every day? Why are the interest rates of the European Central Bank currently so low? What are the reasons of financial and economic crises? How can the euro zone problems be explained? Do we need economic growth? What does it mean to organise an economy which runs socially and ecologically? What different schools economic thinking exist? What about the impact of these various interpretations of economy on the concrete proposals to the economic policy of a state?
ITD participates in the innovation project “Fresh-up Economics. Towards Economic Literacy in Europe”, about these and other questions related to economics and the access to this information by citizens. The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme.
The project is coordinated by weltgewandt e.V. (Germany), and shared with other 5 partners: Aviteum (Czech Republic), Financial Justice Ireland (Ireland), Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien (Austria), Peipsi Center for Transboundary Cooperation (Estonia) and Wyzsza Szkola Ekonomii i innowacji w Lublinie (Poland).
Together we will create a learning platform for economic literacy for adults in Europe.
