The International Congresses take place every two years and constitute a key moment in the life of the Association. They are the culmination of sustained, continuous work of the cities and the networks.
They constitute an opportunity to delve deeper into one or several specific aspects of the Charter of Educating Cities and disseminate, contrast and exchange best practices. Furthermore, they are a unique framework in which cities learn from each other and facilitate the establishment of new contacts and future collaboration.
The knowledge of the initiatives of the city that hosts the Congress and the contact with local agents are other relevant elements on the agenda. The organization of the International Congresses of the IAEC is reserved exclusively to member cities.
The next Congress of the International Association of Educating Cities will take place in Katowice (Poland) in 2020.
