|A few figures:
a+b=3’s focus in China:
Factory workers: for many Chinese migrants who left their province to work in factories on the Eastern coast, a higher and regular salary did not necessarily translate into a higher standard of living. It actually fueled overconsumption and debt. Our programme focuses on controlling expenses through simple tools such as daily spending limit and savings.
- Environment protection: is a major issue that can also be addressed through a more responsible money management (utilities, consumption…).
- Contextualisation: Chinese have a strong tradition of frugality in spending and highly value education. We use Chinese proverbs to give food for thoughts to participants, especially on consumption and ethics, on top of technical content.
