(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.
- 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.

Voting on the Proposals will take place at the DA Main Event on July 1st and 2nd.
Proposals must pass basic quality checks, ensuring they are clear, concise, easy to understand and relevant to the entire movement. Proposals should focus on strategy and be international in scope. Furthermore, submissions will have to assure that the proposal has been drafted and approved by the corresponding Local Chapter or Hub.
There will be ample time, including online commenting and Proposal Workshops, for participants to add feedback, including changes or adaptions, to the proposals. When submitting, 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
- contact address of Hub or Local Chapter Coordinator
