The theme of the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) World Council 2020 is: The role of the International Municipal and Regional Movement in COVID times.
Events during this Council meeting will include a High-Level Policy Dialogue on Ecological Transition in the Context of Post-COVID. This dialogue will discuss: global policy generation processes and their adaptation to the post-COVID world; linkages between democratic processes and the needs of the ecological transition; and international policymaking processes, their involvement with each other, and possible synergies.
The World Council will also host a business session, focused on: the 2021 work plan; composition and agenda of policy councils for 2021; the report of the Financial Management Committee; the Rome Charter on Cultural Rights; and the #CitiesAreListening Experience: Towards a Global Pact with Communities.
UCLG is a global organization of cities and local governments and their associations that represents and defends the interests of local governments on the world stage. It also provides a platform to advance dialogue, cooperation and knowledge-sharing to uplift and empower communities at the local level.
