The CLEMI at a glance

The Clemi (centre for liaison between teaching and information media) is part of the French Ministry of Education. It was created in 1983 with the mission of "promoting especially by means of training activities, the multiple use of news media in teaching with the aim of encouraging a better understanding of the world by pupils while simultaneously developing critical understanding." (Decree of April 1993).

To achieve this mission, the Clemi offers training sessions, educational programmes and events, opportunities of exchange and networking, and pedagogical publications.
