The national networks (NN) reinforce the meaning and value of the ECP- Youth Network (ECP-Y N).
The NNs function as constituencies that convene on regular basis to discuss assigned issues.
The members of the NNs are selected on the basis of their cultural involvement. The individuals, who make up the NNs volunteer their free time and passion, do so with the aim of improving their regional, national and European cultural circumstances.
It is the conclusions accumulated from these NN surgeries, presented, compared and contrasted at a core group level, which form the basis of the reports and proposals which are drafted in order to argue for or against varying cultural policies and cultural agendas in Europe today.
The activities of the NNs are also bespoke, each NN creates activities in line with the local needs, it may be networking, running of a particular project or competence development in a particular area etc
These are the contacts to the group leaders of the different NNs:
