I have had the chance to participate in several events and projects that aimed not to contribute to the scientific community in particular, but to society in general. Below are some examples.
- “Financial Literacy with Professor Brinca and Ric Fazeres”, financial literacy project, focusing on young university students, not necessarily from business or economics. Ric Fazeres is a Portuguese youtuber with over half a million subscribers and the project consists in several episodes about different themes in economics. So far the topics cover the Government Deficit, GDP and Growth, Monetary Policy, Banking and International Trade. Click here to see the videos that have been released so far (in Portuguese). The project has had significant impact in the public and the media with over half a million views. This project was featured on the main TV channel in Portugal – RTP1 – in the segment Bom Dia Portugal! (click here to access it, in Portuguese).
- “Conversas Soltas”, (How can the banking sector improve financial literacy), round table promoted by Banco Popular and lead by the national newspaper “Público”, published in the daily edition of 2017/10/27. Click here to access the online version.
