Esplais Catalans - Esplac (Youth NGO)

Esplac is a Catalan non-profit youth association of leisure-time education for children and youngsters. Founded in 1982 aiming to gather leisure time centres (“esplais”) and people sharing efforts for a common pedagogical and ideological (secular and progressive) project. Esplac is composed by 102 esplais, 6500 children and youngsters, 1600 youth leaders and 200 collaborators. Esplac is member of FIEEA and IFM-SEI.
Our aim is to work for a profound renewal of the pedagogical projects of esplais to transform them into real spaces for children. Esplac centres share the following objectives:
- To intervene in the totality of the person
- To define a way of living, an attitude towards society and life
- To believe in an education of integration, globalisation and liberation
- To educate free people, free-thinkers, conscious of their cultural environment, socially responsible and solidary, with critical and creative minds, tolerant and curious for the world surrounding them.
