European Coalition for Just and Effective Drug Policies elects new Board


BARCELONA - ENCOD will continue their work for just and effective drug policies with renewed vigor. The General Assembly approved new house rules and protocols to professionalise workflows and elected a new Board.

The General Assembly, held 2-4 June in Granollers, Spain, elected Maja Kohek (Slovenia) as President, Gabriele Kozàr (Austria) as Treasurer and Nico Vlaming (The Netherlands) as Secretary. Ana Afuera (Spain), Mauro Picavet (The Netherlands), Enrico Fletzer (Italy) and Matthijs Pontier (The Netherlands) complete the new seven person Executive Committee (EC; previously known as Steering Committee). The newly elected EC will collaborate in a horizontal and inclusive structure, supported by task forces and advisers.

After the unexpected passing of their co-founder and renowned drug activist Joep Oomen in March 2016, ENCOD found itself with the difficult task of reorganising­, with a focus on transparency, accountability, representation, communication and actions. A candle was lit and a minute of silence was held for Joep Oomen at the beginning of the General Assembly 2017.

ENCOD will continue to promote just and effective drug policies in Europe and at the UN. They give priority to improving the rights of users of all drugs, home growers and Cannabis Social Clubs. In doing so, they empower the people that currently suffer the consequences of the hypocritical and ineffective prohibition laws. Additionally, ENCOD will continue building up it’s members’ network, where they can exchange knowledge, support, skills and best practices.

The General Assembly calls on new and existing members to participate in our efforts to share information, apply for projects and improve drug policies.
