Tribute to Deise Martins


Deisee during our 2016 UCLG Retreat & Campus

It is with deep regret that the UCLG family have learnt of the passing of Deise Martins, former Secretary of International Relations of Canoas in Brazil.

A remarkably active member and representative of the international movement of local and regional government networks, Deise contributed greatly to keeping the movement alive, actively promoting solidarity and participatory democracy.

We will all remember her with great respect and friendship, which we wish to convey to her family and friends at this difficult time.
