5. Discussion on Future Direction of ENOA

The members had a long discussion on these subjects

How to work better in network? We talked about the communications tools of ENOA, that it could be great to use them more for communication inside the network, to exchange about good practices at local level… Also when a member need information to make a project the idea is to send the question to all members and not only to the bureau (we all have different experiences, knowledge that we can share!!!). Part of the discussion where also link to how each member can link ENOA with its local reality to develop more concret connexion with our daily involvement and ENOA.

Network of territories! To continue on the same field, ENOA propose a large scale project in order to develop active youth participation in different territories. The idea is also that in the countries, regions, territories that are not involved in the large scale may be each member can try to involved their territories in ENOA. This discussion was about the problem of representation of the members in ENOA, GA for example. The idea to involved our territories of action is also in order to pass the flow and developped a network of territories than can complete the actual network of individual.

Theory making process and experimentations. We were sharing the wish of different members that in one hand want to continue to be train, and work on theoretical level (Erquy process and new topics); and in the other hand the wish to linked this theory with experimentations and futures projects. Some proposal where also to work more one concrete tools that members can adapt at local level.

This points where not voting, but contributed to the reflection of the future of ENOA.
