About IFM-SEI

Who are we?

The International Falcon Movement – Socialist Educational International is an international educational movement working to empower children and young people to take an active role in society and fight for their rights. We are an umbrella organisation for child and youth-led movements all over the world, educating on the basis of our values of equality, democracy, peace, co-operation and friendship. Through our member organisations and our international activities, we aim to ensure that children and young people are well informed about their rights and are empowered to ensure they are respected. To reach this goal, we organise a variety of activities including seminars, training courses, international camps and conferences.

By children and young people, for children and young people

Children and young people are involved in all levels of decision-making in our movement, from their local groups to the world congress. It is our firm belief that children are competent to make decisions and have strong opinions on global issues as well as matters directly affecting them. They need only the empowerment to feel that their voices will be heard in society.

Child Rights Based Approach

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is a key document in all our work. Through peer education, we aim to educate children and young people about their rights and support them to ensure they are respected.

International Solidarity

IFM-SEI is a global movement bringing together children and young people from Latin America, Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. We are an umbrella organisation for 60 national organisations world-wide, promoting internationalism, solidarity and friendship, and advocating for children’s rights all over the world.
