All of the project promoters are members of the UNIQUE Network. UNIQUE Network aims at bringing practice and research together for better quality in non-formal education. We began working on putting our network together in 2006 and since then cooperate with member organisations in various projects, ranging from short-term educational activities (e.g. UNIQUE R.I.D.E., "Facilitating the Volunteers ́ Learning") to long-term projects (e.g. Grundtvig “Learning to learn”, UNIQUE Year of Learning project). Such long lasting and intensive cooperation sets ground for efficient partnership in this project too.
