How to become a member

Women’s organizations but also individuals from all over Europe are encouraged to apply for membership of the WAVE Network.

For a successful application, potential members have to fulfill the following criteria:

  • The organisation should be engaging with other WAVE members/other NGOs in the country.
  • The organisation’s values and opinions should be aligning with WAVE’s values and opinions.
    Only NGOs can become WAVE members.
