The Umweltgruppe Cottbus (UGC, literally Environmental Group Cottbus) is a non-profit association of ecologically engaged Lusatians. We are committed to sustainable energy supply, responsible agriculture and an ecological and solidary society. Our activities range from expertises, press relations, meetings and excursions to protests. Meetings of the group usually take place once a month. We are active locally and networked in several regional and nationwide alliances.
