Basque Global Network
In an effort to create a social network for Basques, Eusko Jaurlaritza has created the Basque Global Network. The goal of this social network is to bring the Basque community together and foster social, cultural, and economic relations. They are hoping that it will become a place for sharing ideas, documents, or multi-media material, and encourage cooperation on projects by Basques all over the world.
