About The Nightingale Mentoring Network

The Nightingale mentoring network was formed in 2010 and is a network for cities in Europe using the Nightingale mentoring concept, starting in Malmö, Sweden, 1997. Please visit the official Swedish Näktergalen Malmö site here!

The network provides several benefits to its members; above all constitutes a favorable forum for deeper pedagogical discussions and research based on mentoring between University students and children. This provides all participants an opportunity to exchange experience within the area of mentoring and also within The Nightingale and its unique philosophical and pedagogical content.

The Nightingale Mentoring network is constituted by its members. A board (Malmö lead partner) consisting of three cities is setting the agenda for each year. The Network members gather at an annual meeting, arranged in one of the member cities. The host of the meeting also arranges an annual conference on mentoring.

For Universities who are interested in using the concept and starting up a new Nightingale project, membership in the new network is a requirement.
