How can you contribute to the Network in your country?: 

I'm able to join meetings, as an audience or a moderator. I've a lot of ideas about how the network can reach out to new groups. As a journalist I can help with contacts and give advices on how the network can reach out with its message more easily. And as I've been living in the Middle East a lot, I can be a link between the network in my country and for example people in Syria.
