Promoting Consumer Education

Trends, Policies and Good Practices

Consumers today are challenged by growing amounts of information and wider choices of products, requiring them to develop skills and knowledge for making good choices in complex markets. This publication examines the approaches that governments use to promote consumer education in OECD and some non-OECD countries, highlighting the policies and measures that have been particularly effective. It also analyses recent trends, the role of stakeholders, steps being taken to evaluate the effectiveness of current programmes and the principal challenges.

Hide / Show Abstract

Consumer education policy in Norway has focused on formal education because it is important to provide schoolchildren with the specialised knowledge required for finding one’s way in an increasingly complex society. The instruction given should enable pupils to make use of this specialised knowledge to take responsibility for their lives and obligations to society and care for a family and protect the environment.
