BBVA’s Center for Financial Education and Capability has organized the second edition of this global event, which this year has a special focus on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

The Foundation aims to reach more people, regardless of how far away they live, and to provide assistance as efficiently and quickly as possible.
