Participation in the network is also mobilised from other fields of economic and social sphere life in Cyprus.

Organisations were also asked to vest their delegates with the authority to negotiated and endorsed documents such as memoranda to be elaborated within the framework of this project. Decisions of the Social Actors Network should was on the basis of unanimity.

The only political requirement was the adherence of organisations to a peaceful and negotiated solution of the Cyprus problem on the basis of a bizonal, bi-communal federation with political equality as it is embedded in the relevant resolutions of the United Nations.
