The travels of Pelico

The aim of Par Le Monde is to help people live together within the community, by promoting cultural exchanges. Its first initiatives concern the education of primary school children, in cooperation with their teachers, in particular children suffering from geographical or social isolation. Our objective is to help children gain better knowledge of themselves and of the diversity of the world around them.

The association uses the internet and new communication technologies as simple, motivating, fun tools to organise educational events and digital exchanges. These workshops enable children to experience digital exchanges with children in France and other countries. In the space of two years, the project mascot (Pelico) and the various participants have visited more than 100 classes across France, covering more than 10,000 km by car, often to places that are often a long way from public transport routes.
