Most of these activities are covered by the non-profit organisation Association PELICAN, which seeks to promote innovation in education, intercultural understanding and cooperation, the inclusion of minorities and work with youth.

The activities of Association PELICAN build on the long-term efforts of the Language school PELICAN to expand and improve teaching methods in the language and other courses it provides.
