smallThe 1er Forum Echecs et Education was held in Geneva last month.

The event was organized by the Fédération Genevoise d'échecs (FGE)  and the Association Internationale des Echecs de la francophonie (AIDEF) in association with FIDE, ECU and the city of Geneva.

Contributions came from many countries (especially from Africa francophone). 

After an introduction by  Madame Joëlle Leutwyler (adjointe de direction au service enseignement et évaluation, direction générale de l'enseignement obligatoire), the three main speakers were AIDEF President Patrick van Hoolandt, CiS Commission Chairman Kevin O'Connell and FGE President GM Gilles Miralles.
