National Networks

GEN national networks bring together and give a platform to a wide variety of projects and players related to community empowerment and sustainability. They provide an invaluable support for civil society engagement by organising national gatherings as platforms for the exchange of best practice, and the creation of synergies. They build bridges between civil society initiatives and policy makers, between academia, green business and practitioners.
