ENARs Regional Meetings will bring together representatives from broadly understood geographical regions working on similar topics and issues. This collaborative platform has been created to meet the members' needs for more horizontal cooperation and exchange of knowledge and practices.


We aim to offer more spaces for members to interact, collaborate, learn from one another and network. We understand that in the dynamic landscape of nonprofit organizations, the ability to exchange experiences and practices is crucial for growth and sustainability.


This two-day event aims to foster an environment of learning, sharing, and networking, enabling NGOs to strengthen their capacities and collectively work towards their common goals.


We believe that by fostering horizontal cooperation and providing a space for exchanging practices, we can amplify the impact of each organisation and create more resilient members and stronger ENAR Network.


Please be aware that this specific Regional Meeting will only gather representatives of member organisations from the countries mentioned above. There will be other opportunities in the upcoming months for gatherings of other regions.
