Permanent Commission for Education

Mission & Organization

The Permanent Commission for Education envisions to foster education principles, methodologies, activities, and tools within the Federation and beyond. To this end, it promotes and collects conferences for classical and new teaching techniques, supports exchanges of students, institutions, and professors in countries other than their own, and assists UNESCO in finding experts for instruction in developing countries, maintaining records of exchanges and long-term costs. The PC welcomes new members in particular from younger generations to help shaping the policies for the years to come.
