Dutch National Money Week 2020 cancelled after new COVID-19 measures

National Money Week 2020, that was scheduled to take place from 23 to 27 March, will be cancelled. This announcement was made by the Money Wise Platform, that organizes National Money Week, after the announcement of the latest measures by the Dutch government related to the coronavirus (CORVID-19) earlier this afternoon. During the national project week, 5.500 guest lessons and workshops about money, amongst other activities, were planned. 

10th edition will take place at a later stage

 Joost Smits, chairman of Money Wise: “The festive nature and our coordinated approach to teach children financial competencies are an important foundation for the National Money Week. Due to the current circumstances, this foundation has fallen away and this has led to the unfortunate decision to cancel the Week for now. We will decide at a later stage when the 10th edition of National Money Week will take place.”

About the National Money Week

During the National Money Week schools all over the Netherlands organize activities to promote financial competencies. Money Wise pursues structural financial education in the school curriculum. In support of this aim, Money Wise organizes the yearly National Money Week. The platform wants to prepare children for financial resilience in the future.
