About Comenius

'We are all citizens of one world.'

The Comenius Programme is named after Jan Amos Comenius (1592-1670), often considered the father of modern education
Comenius is aimed at schools, colleges and local authorities across Europe

Comenius has two main objectives:

to develop knowledge and understanding among young people and education staff of the diversity of European cultures and languages, and the value of this diversity
to help young people to acquire basic life skills and competences for their personal development, for future employment and for active European citizenship
