By joining ENSI, you will be in a stronger position to respond to all these challenges. A modest human and financial investment from the ENSI member countries resources an exciting international programme of research and innovative activities and projects.
In practice, this means working together through mutual understanding, and respect for cultural diversity, to avoid unnecessary duplication and reinvention. We find a common language, methodology and critique to achieve significant and measurable progress in an area of fundamental importance to formal and non-formal education worldwide.
This explanatory memorandum outlines the benefits to member countries of becoming part of the ENSI international network, and responsibilities and expectations of member organisations.
