Pedagogical Co-ordination Council, set up by the Barcelona Municipal
Institute of Education, brings together institutions and civic
organisations offering educational activities for schoolchildren. It
began operating in the 1988-1989 school year, initially with meetings
of staff from different departments of Barcelona City Council that
organised activities for schoolchildren in the city, and was officially
recognised by a mayoral decree on 26 February 1991.
The Pedagogical Co-ordination Council was set up by Barcelona Council
to co-ordinate the civic organisations and institutions providing
educational activities for schools with a view to optimising the city
as an educational agent and widening the possibilities children have
for learning from it. Since it was established, the number of
organisations on the Pedagogical Co-ordination Council and the
activities offered by them has not stopped growing, with new public
institutions, foundations, NGO's and companies joining it all the time.
