Organisation of Educational Cooperation (OEC)
As set out by its Constitutive Charter, the purpose of OEC is to “contribute to the equitable, just, and prosperous social transformation of societies by promoting balanced and inclusive education, in order to attain the fundamental rights to liberty, justice, dignity, sustainability, social cohesion, and material and immaterial security for the peoples of the world.”
The OEC acts, therefore, as a platform and an instrument of intellectual, technical and financial cooperation and solidarity between its Member States as well as its Associate Members.
The OEC was established to:
The Preparatory Committee

The Preparatory Committee, under the supervision of the Secretary-General-elect, shall draft and prepare the OEC programmes, budget estimates, and make such other relevant arrangements to be submitted to the first General Assembly. A virtual Advisory Committee, constituted of a representative per voluntary founding State, shall receive quarterly reports by the Secretary-General-elect on the progress made by the Preparatory Committee.
