>Back to "Local Chapters"

The ECG movement has an extensive support network for local chapters. Each local chapter has its own coordinators. Beyond that we have Regional Local Chapter Coordinators who answer questions and support the Local Chapter Coordinators.

The ECG Community Manager (gus.hagelberg@ecogood.org) and International Reception (international@ecogood.org) coordinate local chapter support internationally. Read more about the tasks of the Community Manager and International Reception.

All coordinators are asked to abide by the ECG Code of Conduct.

Local Chapter Coordinators

Each ECG Local Chapters has two coordinators, who are chosen by chapter members and should maintain this role for at least one year. They act as reliable contacts for all ECG activities in the area. They also work to encourage synergies and partnerships with other local chapters, local businesses and local politicians.

Common tasks

Regional Local Chapter Coordinators

We have created a network of Regional Local Chapter Coordinators (below) for regions across the globe with ECG activities. They support Local Chapters in their respective regions (for example Bavaria, Germany, Austria or South America) and serve as a link to ECG regional associations (legal bodies).

Regional Local Chapter Coordinators carry out the task for at least one year, at the end of which they find a successor and and pass on the necessary knowledge.
