Profile of the president

Network of national representatives

Europe consists of many countries, especially since the early nineties, when many countries in Eastern Europe and the former Yugoslavia became independent.

Since the 5th European Conference of ICEVI in Cracow, we have now in 50 countries a national representative. He/She will help us to provide information about activities in their country on the National Page. Read also the job description of the national representatives.

Number of inhabitants in the country Number of national representatives
less than 20 milions 1 national representative
more than 20 and less than 50 milions 2 national representatives
