The Organisation

A Little Bit About Us

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 socialist values of equality, democracy, peace, solidarity, co-operation, anti-capitalism 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. We educate children and young people to be critical thinkers and active decision-makers in their lives. To reach this goal, we organise a variety of activities using non-formal education, participatory and inclusive methodologies including seminars, training courses, international camps and conferences.

IFM-SEI has a long history since being established in 1922 and having our very first international camp in the twenties. You can find out about IFM-SEI in the current age by checking out our aims and principles and the latest versions of our governing documents. You can also find out more about the structure and decision-making processes of IFM-SEI, including the different statutory bodies and networks we have.
