Why “AGORA”?
1. We want to create an all-embracing learning and convening space to bring together essential actors to co-produce high quality ECI services
2. We want to produce practical guidance and tools to provoke a systemic change on the social welfare system by improving the legal and policy frameworks at European, national and/or regional levels
3. We want to develop examples that can serve as inspiring guidelines for other countries in Europe and other groups of children with special needs or at risk of exclusion (such as children with Roma or migrant background).
