The deadline for submission of candidacies to host the 4th UCLG World Congress in 2013 has been extended to 30 June 2010.
The 4th World Congress of UCLG will mark the 100-year anniversary of the international municipal movement.This triennal event is a focal point for the local government world and the primary meeting point for local elected representatives and their partners. It is where mayors, councillors and presidents of regional authorities and their associations come together to set the local government agenda for the next three years and beyond, and to examine and debate key issues at the heart of local democracy and decentralisation in the 21st century.
The decision on the next host for the Local and Regional Leaders World Summit will be taken in the Mexico Congress taking place in 16-20 November 2010.
The members of the UCLG World Council are looking for innovative proposals for hosting this world class event, which will promote partnerships and build synergies.
If you think your city or Local Government Association can meet this exciting challenge, we very much look forward to receiving your proposal at the World Secretariat of UCLG.
