All provided by WSBI to help make their World Savings Day a success.

Kick-off event on 19 October

​Logo and theme

WSBI allows approved, participating partners full use of the logo and theme “When you save a bit, big things follow!". Use of the logo is allowed when highlighting World Savings Day on your conference website, stationary or the event signage.  E-mail WSBI to receive logos. 

World Savings Day website

Partners can refer to this website, to glean ideas about projects done by WSBI members and partners during the past few years. The site also gives participants a chance to highlight their events through pictures and a short description of what they did, where, when and for whom.  

​Story and event ideas: 

The best stories start with people, so WSBI provides partners ideas how to connect better with their communities by bringing their stories alive.  The site also suggests inspiration for events, including a bike ride, a jeans exchange, a “build-money-box challenge" or a reading club for kids.​
