(ECG Delegates Assembly 2019 in Stuttgart, Germany)


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 a central place for making movement-wide decisions. The event is designed to enable a deeper understanding of issues of importance to the entire movement. It is a meeting space for ECG activists created to promote mutual understanding of motivation, exchange of interest and role information within the ECG movement. Decision-making is conducted by the delegates using the method "systemic consensus". Learn more about the Delegates Assembly in the ECG Governance (login required).

The Delegates Assembly 2022 will take place online with activists from across our global movement. 

Dates

  • June 3: two-hour Opening Session (online)
  • June 4 - June 10: Proposal Workshops (online)
  • July 1 and 2: two-day Main Event (online)

The July event will consist of community building, presentations from Local Chapters and Hubs, Open Spaces and voting on DA Proposals.

The Delegates Assembly will be held in English but this year we are excited to announce that we plan to offer simultaneous translations into German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese (dependent on budgeting and availability of interpreters).

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

  • current situation in the ECG movement regarding the proposal

  • communication with affected Hubs

  • planned next steps

  • people or groups responsible for implementation

  • contact address of Hub or Local Chapter Coordinator
