The Delegates Assembly was established in 2012 as a body to make decisions on behalf of the ECG movement. It is the meeting of elected representatives of ECG Hubs and Local Chapters and is considered the "parliament of the movement". The Delegates Assembly (DA) is designed to enable a deeper understanding of issues of importance to the entire movement. It serves as a basis for strong, movement-wide decisions that are reported back to Local Chapters and Hubs.

The DA should provide a personal and appreciative meeting space for ECG activists and promote mutual understanding of motivation, interest in and role within the ECG movement. Decision-making is conducted by the delegates using the method "systemic consensus". Learn more about ECG Policy regarding the Delegates Assembly (*login required).

The DA 2021 will take place online with over 100 participants from 16 countries (participants list, *login required). It will begin with an opening session on May 14, then Proposal Workshops from May 15 to May 21 and concluding with a two-day conference on June 18th and 19th. The final two-day event will consist of community building, presentations from Local Chapters and Hubs, open spaces and voting on DA Proposals. Here is the list of current proposals for the DA 2021 (*login required). 

If you want to provide an Open Space please enter the details here.

Local Chapters, Associations or other groups are encouraged to organize and host local events running parallel to the official DA events. 

Discussions and changes to proposals will take place in the online commenting period leading up to the DA and during the "Proposal Workshops" during the official DA events. These workshops are official events of the DA and will replace the "Marketplaces" of previous Delegates Assemblies. The final versions of the proposals, including alternatives, will be finalized on June 6th, 2 weeks before voting takes place.

Participation and Registration

Delegates and guests must be members of an ECG Association and active members of a Local Chapter or Hub. Delegates must be elected by their Local Chapters or Hubs. The Delegates Assembly will be conducted in English, therefore good English skills are highly recommended.

You can apply for membership in an ECG Association here. 

Guests and delegates need an ECG Account in order to participate. You can apply for an ECG account here. Only delegates, who are elected by their Local Chapters or ECG Hubs, can vote.

Proposals for the DA 2021 can be viewed here (*login required).

Between February 15th and March 30th delegates of Local Chapters and Hubs were able to submit proposals. Between 1.4. and 14.5. participants can comment on proposals and between 15.5. and 28.5. we will host proposal workshops (schedule below). 

Proposals must pass basic quality checks, ensuring the proposals are clear, concise, easy to understand and relevant to the entire movement. Proposals should focus on strategy and be international in scope.

There will be ample time, including online commenting and Proposal Workshops (Marketplaces), for delegates to add feedback, including changes or adaptions, to the proposals. When submitting their proposals, authors will be asked to provide detailed information including:

  • current situation in the ECG movement regarding the proposal
  • communication with affected Hubs
  • planned next steps
  • People or groups responsible for implementation
