National Representatives

Who is responsible in my region?

To represent the voice of the OCEANS members globally, the Board has created the National Representative position. National Reps support the Board, namely the International Coordinator, in seeking feedback from alumni in their regions to help plan future alumni engagement activities. Therefore, National Reps are key external relations players who will activate our Network at the grassroots level. As National Representative, you can organise one or more OCEANS gatherings in your current city, or even launch a bigger event to make your region a key region for our Network.

If you require any further information, don't hesitate to get in contact the International Coordinator marwa.eljai@oceans-network.eu or board@oceans-network.eu or directly the respecting representative in your region.
