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. In the Green League network (Grüne Liga), we are the contact point witch regards to brown coal. Especially in Lusatia (southern part of Brandenburg and eastern part of Saxonia, Germany), we are committed to a timely end of coal mining.
We are open not only to new associates, but also to new topics, thematic working groups can be formed within the UGC.
