Education and training

Support for philanthropists who want to get involved in the fields of training and education.

Promoting access to education for children and young people and training for adults: the King Baudouin Foundation joins forces with philanthropist and donors. We support and collaborate on projects of public interest in this area. In relation to education about democracy and citizenship, we develop and manage the BELvue museum, a place where visitors – and especially youngsters – can find out more about the history of Belgium and develop critical thinking about important issues of democracy.

Our activities

  • support for philanthropists (individuals, organisations, businesses) who wish to be involved in the fields of training and education
  • support for the projects of individuals and organisations that aim to improve the education of children and young people and training for adults
  • development of the permanent exhibition of the BELvue museum, which is permanently open to the general public
  • implementation of educational activities in the form of temporary exhibitions and activities designed for students around a number of themes such as democracy and citizenship, the media, our colonial history and justice.

Education and training is part of the programme Education and development of talents
