Who can become a member in college G?
Civil Society Organisations come in a variety of forms, often varying in definition based on their country of origin. For this reason, all decisions on new members are taken by the Board of Directors of Water Europe on a case-by case basis.
However, adherence to a number of criteria can indicate if an organisation qualifies for college G. Some notable criteria are:
The organisation is separated from both the state and the market;
The organisation is primarily community-serving, meaning that, other than catering to its members’ needs, the organisation serves a broader purpose, for instance societal or environmental;
The organisation bases its income primarily on donations and public subsidies;
The organisation is registered as an NGO, non-profit, foundation, charity or in a category with similar traits.
The member should endorse the WE Vision and promote it in their territory. Each year, it should submit a report to highlight how it contributes to the implementation of the vision.
