Educational Organisation and NGO
Pistes-Solidaires is an educational organisation that champions the knowledge, skills and attitudes that promote justice and equality in our multicultural society and interdependent world. Pistes-Solidaires works to enable individuals to better understand the links between their own lives and those of others across the world.
We see education as all-encompassing and life-long, and our work in the educational domain is based on UNESCO’s four pillars of learning: learning to know, learning to do, learning to be, and learning to live together.
Pistes-Solidaires is a European Non-Governmental Organisation that is very active at the European level. The organisation comprises 3 departments:
- Youth: this department gives people the chance to experience learning mobility through European programmes (EVS, youth exchanges, training courses), as well as international voluntary civil service through the French civil service.
- Social transition: Pistes-Solidaires aims to increase the impact of EU cooperation at local level in the following spheres: education, social inclusion, socio-cultural fields.
- European citizenship: we aim to augment local knowledge of Europe and European values. We were awarded the ‘Europe Direct Information Centre’ label by the European Commission in 2013.
