The First World War Centennial Mission

The French government has assigned the First World War Centennial Mission the task of preparing and supporting implementation of the Centennial commemoration program. Its job will be to organize the most important events in the commemorative calendar, to support and coordinate the initiatives taken throughout France, and finally to define a public communication strategy to raise awareness about the Centennial.

More than 3,500 projects in France and abroad have been awarded official Centennial accreditation. The Mission’s Internet portal,, is designed to be a veritable digital resource centre, and provides the general public with real-time information, in three languages: French, English and German.
