Dear Mayor, Dear President,
The triennial UCLG World Congress 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 decentralization in the 21st century.
The 2019 gathering will be the first Congress following the Habitat III Conference and will also provide the opportunity to present progress in the implementation of the SDGs and their impacts at local level.
It should also be the occasion to show the evolution of our World Organization within the framework of its 15th anniversary.
The UCLG Presidency and members of the UCLG World Council are looking for innovative proposals that will be able to accommodate the ideas stated above and host this world‑class event.
Enclosed you will find all requirements for presenting a candidature.
If you think your city or local government association can meet this exciting challenge, our World Secretariat very much looks forward to receiving your proposal.
For further information or to present a candidature, please write to the attention of the UCLG Secretary General at UCLGExBu@uclg.org before 31 August 2016.
