This online Database of Good Practices contains descriptions and links to practical initiatives on various topics implemented by the ETUCE member organisations. The aim of the work on good practices is to enhance the effective implementation of ETUCE policies by the ETUCE member organisations on national and regional level. This database is to be used by education trade unions as a source of inspiration and as a practical manual of tools and arguments proven successful within education trade unions and in the education sector.
