Join the global conversation about using chess as a tool in education!

Every last Wednesday of the month ChessPlus holds a Discussion Group Meeting for chess educators to share and discuss their experiences, ideas and knowledge on different topics related to Chess in Education.


Our Mission with the monthly Discussion Group Meetings is to provide a platform and connect chess educators from all over the world to learn from each other and gain new insights through different perspectives and experiences.

The event is supported by the European Chess Union.
