Some quick answers:
What are regional platforms?
Regional Platforms (RP) give the section members from a certain region the opportunity to come together to share knowledge, establish partnerships, learn about new developments within the network and talk about the matters which concern their sections on the local and national level. Switzerland is part of the Western European Platform (WEP) together with Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
ESN meetings are not just about working! All the Organising Committees (OC) are trying their best to secure a fun and unforgettable evening programme!
What is the AGM?
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the general assembly of ESN, where all official ESN sections of all member countries are invited to make decisions for the future and strategy of the network. As the AGM is a perfect opportunity to exchange information between all the sections, a lot of time is dedicated to different plenary sessions and workshops concerning local, national and international level of ESN.
What is the NP?
The National Platform (NP) is the general assembly of ESN Switzerland, where all Swiss ESN sections meet to make decisions (such as where the next national event will take place, the budget, etc.). It is also a great opportunity to meet and party with people from other sections and discover a Swiss city.
What is the CLR?
The Council of Local Representatives (CLR) is an informal meeting of ESN Switzerland, where all Swiss ESN sections (at least their local representatives) meet to discuss matters of interest to the network and to get to know and exchange information with committee members of other ESN sections.
