EstRA is a member of The European Literacy Policy Network (ELINET). This network unifies 78 partner organisations from 28 European countries (including 24 EU member states) engaged in literacy policy-making and reading promotion in Europe.
ELINET has many teams, EstRA is participating in team 7 "Awareness Raising"
The mission of this team is to raise awareness about literacy by developing a comprehensive toolkit encompassing awareness raising tools and materials, such as a campaign movie and a literacy scan, an online database with good practices from all over Europe, and a strategic guidance. A practice has to be research-proved, to be considered as good, so ELINET has supported the implementation studies of one of the EstRAs most successful projects, the Reading Nest.
