It is an innovative educational project, organized since 2008 by the Civil Development Forum FOR , in cooperation with Bank Zachodni WBK and under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and the Centre for Education Development. Its aim is presentation of the issues related to the economy in an accessible pictorial form, appealing to an audience of all ages.
Each edition of the project consists of a competition for the best comics and - on the basis of selected works - lessons plans developed by experts for use in social studies and entrepreneurship education. These scenarios and comics, recorded to CD, are distributed, free of charge, together with an illustrated book containing selected works, among teachers of middle and high schools. Its accessible form helps students to understand how the economy really works. The comics show, among others, benefits of running one's own business, advantages of saving, importance of creating good law; they also explain a number of basic definitions. Teachers have an opportunity to increase attractiveness of their lessons and to explain complex issues of economic and social life by simple examples .
Within the scope of the project, once a year, FOR invites teachers to Warsaw for an academic conference; FOR staff and volunteers regularly conduct workshops on the teaching of economics in schools throughout the country.
