This joint ESAs conference will bring together high-level government representatives as well as experts from public authorities, academia, NGOs, consumer associations and the industry, to exchange ideas and experiences, stimulate the discussion and raise awareness on financial education and literacy.

The discussion is organised around the following four topics:

• financial education and Capital Markets Union;
• digitalisation with a specific focus on cybersecurity, scams and fraud;
• financial resilience of vulnerable groups; and
• sustainable finance.

Due to the limitations of the online platform, the number of participants may be limited and spontaneous registrations will be assessed and confirmed on a first-come first-served basis.
