In the current global context, at a time where our planet is suffering at the social, economical and environmental levels, at a time where whole populations have to leave their countries because of major conflicts, of governmental crisis, of famine, of natural catastrophes, of terrorism, etc. the Comenius Association believes more than ever that there is an absolute necessity to invest all our energies in education and intercultural encounters.
The Comenius Association is an international network of European institutions of higher education specialized in Teacher Training and Social Education.
It aims to contribute to the development of the intercultural competence in training European teachers and educators with the idea that they will in their turn develop it in the future.
It aims to encourage future teachers and educators to look beyond their borders and to open themselves to otherness.
It aims to learn to appreciate our differences, to create tools that will help to understand other cultures better.
It provides a large network of contacts, whose aim it is to facilitate exchanges at all levels and to promote intercultural projects and European programmes and other actions in the field of education.
