The network

No one is a stranger. We are all in this together having a shared sense of values and objectives – working with the next generation to create a much needed change for this planet. By coming together, partnering with other groups and combining our resources, we become more powerful than when we each acted alone. This is how a network is formed.

What is a network and why is network building so important?

When we think about networks, we see the network that surrounds us every day. The people we meet and know.Your network is everywhere. Your network is your face-to-face relationships. Your virtual connections. Your network is people you speak to every day and those you’ve never even met. We are surrounded with opportunities everywhere. This is also true for our activism – with the work we do daily to make this world a better place for humans, animals and our planet. It pays to listen, ask questions, and share your own expertise. Eventually the network will reply – with suggestions, comments and overall support.

Together, we can...

The network exists for its members and the work they do. As a part of EAN they have access to mentorship programmes, practical resources, networks of change makers working on similar projects as well as potential funding opportunities for impactful campaigns.

We support organizations around the globe who are working to empower children to make healthy food choices. Those who have the on-the-ground expertise, a deep understanding of the issues we care about, and strong ties with the communities in which we aim to make a difference. 

We come from different parts of the world, but we are all united by the same vision.

The more diverse a network, the more impactful it becomes.

The complexity of the global food and education system and the scope of EAN should allow broad inclusion, especially considering the network is less about providing judgment over different individual approaches, and more about providing a platform for cumulative learning and sharing of resources.A successful coalition is made up of people who have never worked together before.

Beyond the viewpoints of individual groups themselves, we seek to maintain an overall balance of perspectives, ensuring representation and equal weight is given to the different cause areas.
