The International Falcon Movement - IFM

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 changing society for the better and fight for their rights. We are an umbrella organisation for sixty child and youth-led movements all over the world, educating on the basis of our values of equality, democracy, peace, co-operation and friendship.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is a key document for IFM-SEI. Through our member organisations and the activities of our international, 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. Our work is based on peer education: We believe that young people have as much to teach as they have to learn.

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 only need the empowerment to feel that their voices will be heard in society.
