Council of Cities
The Council of Cities (CoC) represents the member cities. The CoC is coordinated by the Council Coordinator and supported by the OASC secretariat.
The Council of Cities consists of the Network Coordinators of each national and regional OASC network. The Network Coordinators are elected by the cities, coordinate local activities and serve as a first contact point.
In the following you can find the national network coordinators for each OASC member network. If your city is interested in joining OASC, you can contact the representative responsible for your region. If your region has not yet joined, contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
