The AFoU network is led and coordinated by a working committee in close collaboration with the social partners in the network's reference group.
The AFoU network meetings in the reference and steering groups take place 3-4 times a year, with activities in between that have been prioritized and decided.

Every year, a strategic dialogue seminar is held with current themes.
