EAN and its member organizations are aware of the huge challenge implied in its broad call for action, as described below.
EAN’s membership is widely spread out over the entire European continent and consequently brings together anti-bullying approaches and strategies which have been designed in accordance with and respectful of local conditions of culture and society.
EAN considers this to be a valuable asset in view of a cooperation with institutions, public and nongovernmental, to work towards objectives of Responsible Leadership as described here.
