AEDE pursues the aim of its founders, which is that it should be a network of European contacts, ideas and activities, working towards giving the younger generations an education that will equip them to grow into a European society capable of tackling with clear heads and stout hearts the formidable and complex problems that it will have to resolve.

AEDE has a network of more than 25,000 teachers, heads, inspectors and officials, from nursery to university level. AEDE welcomes teachers and schools throughout Europe who wish to work together to build the European society of the future.
