Knowledge for a sustainable future

Our aim is to advance knowledge on the responsible use of household resources, because choices made at home affect the quality of life for all.

We promote household and consumer knowledge to strengthen homes as a place where

  • informed individual choices transform societies towards a sustainable future.
  • equality starts and everyone can develop their full potential.


IFHE is the global voice for home economics and consumer science. We connect research and education from almost 70 countries, foster multi-disciplinary exchange and represent our field's expertise at the United Nations.
