The International Association for the Dissemination of Chess arises from the evolution of a series of actions by a group of people from the world of education and, at the same time, chess enthusiasts in Catalonia.
The establishment of this association made it possible to resize the lines of work, which we are already carrying out through Balàgium Editors, and to give it a new approach, completely altruistic and supportive.
We must take advantage of the many and varied advantages that this strategy game-sport offers in order to contribute to the spread of chess as a first-rate pedagogical resource in the educational, therapeutic and recreational fields.
The association between chess and intelligence is often seen in advertising and journalistic analysis. Therefore, the universalization of the practice of chess would serve to promote gender equality and multiculturalism.
Develop the international EDUCACHESS project primarily in the fields of education, sports, therapy and solidarity.
This project is based on educational chess. This new approach, while developing cognitive skills, developing competence-based learning and acquiring comprehensive training, allows also learning to play chess.
Achieve an infrastructure to host a multilingual WikiChess in Web 3.0 format that hosts all materials in PDF format, interactive multimedia applications, the solidarity contest platform and, in addition, guarantees mass access to its contents.
The project is altruistic because it aims to be of everyone and for everyone. That is, to make all content free of charge and to facilitate cooperation for its expansion and updating. To do this, we are incorporating new collaborators who work in educational chess because sharing is equivalent to growing.
While a sponsorship is being sought for the development of the whole project, new collaboration agreements are being signed and Balagium Editors is assuming all the costs of the altruistic development of the Educachess project.
We look forward to the possibility of integrating and developing this project through a foundation that will ensure its full development and maximum international dissemination.
