56. Become a Member of NEWW!

NEWW is opening to members from outside the CEE/CIS region.

Become a Member of NEWW.

Members of NEWW from the region of CEE/CIS are looking for opportunities to collaborate, share experience and support with organizations from other countries. They are particularly interested in finding partners in the EU countries. It is because some of them come from accession countries, and also because the EU policies are so crucial for their activities and lives. There is a need for common lobbying, advocacy and common campaigns. We need to learn from each other and to cooperate, e.g. women in Poland need a support because of the governmental plans to ban abortion.
