Information for schools

Education is at the heart of the Central Bank outreach activities. In particular, we feel a strong responsibility to contribute to the educational development of the next generation. We work to deliver on these goals by taking part a number of key education initiatives aimed at improving awareness of the role of our organisation and of the Eurosystem.

Generation €uro Students’ Award

In conjunction with the ECB, we run the Generation €uro Students’ Award, a national competition for Transition Year and 5th Year students which promotes awareness of monetary policy and macroeconomics.

Educational Resources

On our educational resources and games page, you'll find links to multimedia and games to help young people, students and the general public learn more about basic economic concepts such as inflation and price stability.
