Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

It is great whenever any effort is made to take chess to schools. Here is another such effort. The President of the European Chess Union Silvio Danailov and the Former World Champion Garry Kasparov met with the European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, Mrs. Androulla Vassiliou on 21st of March in Brussels.

During the meeting they discussed about the joint project of the European Chess Union and Kasparov Chess Foundation, Chess in School, which provides for implementation of the ancient game in the educational system of the European states. Mrs. Vassiliou gave her full support for the project.

Between 19 - 22 September this year, the President of ECU and the Former World Champion will do the final presentation of the project Chess in School to the members of the European Parliament.
