International Astronomical Union Commission C.C1

C.C1 is a Commission within Division C of the International Astronomical Union (IAU). This Commission seeks to encourage the development and improvement of astronomical education at all levels all over the world through various projects developed and maintained by the Commission and by disseminating information concerning astronomy education.

Three Working Groups were established to carry out the specific objectives of CC1: Theory and Methods in Astronomy Education, Network for Astronomy School Education (NASE), and Astronomy for Equity, Inclusion and Diversity.

The “Working Group for Equity and Inclusion”, which I coordinate,  has its main focus in the development of tools, resources and strategies to accomplish a real inclusion for people with any kind of disabilities in astronomy related activities.
