Money is evolving, and so is the way we pay, how we stay financially safe and the kinds of financial services we need. We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Bank of England to get young people’s voices heard on the future of money.
The British Youth Council has secured an online session with the Deputy Governor, Ben Broadbent, to get young peoples’ questions answered on the future of money. Ben would like young people to share their thoughts and questions on the future of cash, payments and savings. He will be answering as many questions as possible at 9:15am on 6 December 2018. And the best three submitters will receive an invitation to join the culmination event with Mark Carney in January.
How you can get involved
Please go to the Bank of England Youth Forum page. When you register please include the letters BYC at the end of your display name. You should then leave the first name and surname fields blank. The Q&A will be taking place on Thursday morning so the sooner you submit your thoughts the better.
You can ask anything from questions about cashless systems, why money matters, online security when it comes to payments as well as what the Bank of England does to help the economic climate, how they educate young people about economics and how they involve young people in their plans for the future.
