This global project also consists of several interrelated subprojects, with education being the fundamental basis for developing others, especially social and solidarity projects.
In short, the project has three lines of development and each of them would have several phases of execution.
The first is the publication of materials (PDF and books). The second is the programming of the previous materials in interactive multimedia format. And, thirdly, the design of the solidarity competition on the Internet for schools based on the above interactive multimedia materials.
This sport game has a number of peculiarities that make it ideal for enhancing cognitive abilities, developing skills and abilities (including emotional ones) and acquiring values.
In addition, as chess is socially associated with intelligence, it is ideal for working on values that promote gender equality and multiculturalism.
The size of the project and its international reach require significant patronage so that all multilingual materials (interactive PDF and multimedia) are freely accessible and also to have an infrastructure that guarantees the continuity of the project and the material updates. In addition, it will serve to expedite the entire development of the project. Also, it will enable the maximum annual participation of students in this solidarity contest.
