Chess in Schools World Survey

Help us make Chess in Schools better!

Chess in Schools is growing all over the Globe. To get an overview of statistics, methods and structure for CiS in different parts of the world, FIDE and ECU have created a project that includes a survey, an investigation of certification possibilities, and an overview of online tools for CiS.

This web page serves as the focal point for information about the survey. We need people involved in CiS in the countries under the FIDE umbrella to answer 10-15 questions within Survey Monkey, and one person from each country to be part of an interview.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions of key persons for Chess in Schools in your country with whom we can arrange an interview.

Before starting the survey, please review carefully the information provided below and on the Survey Information and FAQ pages.
