The Bank of Finland has opened its online study site More about the euro, which focuses on monetary and financial matters.
The site (www.euro.fi) has been designed as additional study material for students of economic affairs at the upper level of comprehensive school, upper secondary school and vocational and technical colleges. The site aims to provide an easy-to-use and fun way to familiarise oneself with the ways in which the monetary economy works, all of which have important implications for the financial affairs of young people.
