Sweden National Network joins EAPN
9th GA – Porto (Portugal):
It is considered to be one of the most memorable GA’s of EAPN. The Portuguese network organised at the same time of the GA, a Seminar about Structural Funds, a projects exhibition and an Art Exhibition with fundraising purposes.
Preparatory measures to fight poverty and social exclusion:
After the unsuccessful end of the European anti-poverty programmes the EC, based on the opportunity offered by the Amsterdam Treaty (articles 136º e 137º), launched this programme to keep “the flame alive” and fund some transnational initiatives. Several national networks of EAPN had the opportunity to run into different calls and work together in different and interesting transnational projects with direct funding from the EC. These calls were available between 1998 and 2000.
