This year, HundrED recognised innovations from 38 countries. Each of the selected innovations were evaluated on the selection criteria of impact and scalability, and were reviewed by teachers, students, leaders, innovators and other HundrED Community members. A total of 2008 reviews were made by the expert HundrED Academy Members which led to Me & MyCity’s selection.
Me & MyCity was chosen due to its unique pioneering status and ability to create a scalable impact. In Finland, the Me & MyCity concept reaches 75% of 6th graders. This year Me & MyCity was exported to Beijing, China.
In addition to the HundrED global innovation collection, Me & MyCity was also selected for the HundrED Spotlight on Financial Skills for the Youth. This means Me & MyCity is among the most inspiring education innovations in the field of youth financial education. Together with OP Financial Group, HundrED looked for the best innovations of financial skills from Finland and other parts of the world. The goal was to identify how young people learn financial skills now and how they could be best taught in the future.
All innovations are freely available on the HundrED website.
