We are implementing a wide range of efforts to support the need to improve financial literacy in countries around the world.
Financial and Economic Education
Mizuho supports financial and economic education at various locations and institutions, harnessing the group's wide range of practical knowledge and know-how about finance, nurtured through the provision of comprehensive financial services.
In May 2019, Mizuho set a target for financial and economic education participants over the next five years.

Increasing online activities
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continued to curtail our participation in lecture sessions and educational opportunities in FY2021. At the same time, we continued to increase our online class offerings and utilized remote educational tools. As a result, the number of participants in our classes increased from the previous fiscal year, reaching a total of 10,970.
Activities at Schools
Mizuho supports financial and economic education at various stages of education, targeting both students and teachers.
