Activity of Associations du Réseau Hommes Français (Association of French Men's Networks)
Aims and objectives
A network of collaboration and friendship between men with the aim of enabling men to meet in small groups and to share relationships in confidence and intimacy. Each group is autonomous and is made up of around 12 men who meet regularly. The coordination of these groups is run by a small group of volunteers in each urban region. There is a minimum of hierarchy and an ad hoc structure. The groups are made up of men from different generations who belong to different religious, linguistic and ethnic groups. Learning about intimacy between men aims to create better relationships between men and women as well. The tools for the network were developed in Quebec and have been used in Belgium and Switzerland as well. There are around 15 groups/associations in France.
