Building bridges: From vision to collective action
Annual Retreat 2023
What is the UCLG Retreat?
The UCLG Annual Retreat is a week-long gathering that provides an opportunity for the key nodes of the Organization and partners to define synergies and develop actions in line with the work plans set out by the Governing Bodies.
It offers participants an opportunity to boost the connections among the different parts of the UCLG ecosystem, including the involvement of political leaders and the technical staff, to come together as a network and reflect on our priorities for the rest of the year.
Every experience is unique and the added value is for you to define!
The Retreat has come to be the gathering in which the World Secretariat, the Presidency, partners, the Secretariats of our Sections, Committees and Working groups, civil society, and other partners, gather to launch new ideas and innovate to find inspiring solutions and safeguard the dreams and aspirations of our communities.
Committees and Sections help identify the necessary collaborations among the different parts of the network and strengthen the synergies between the different work plans, aiming to put territorial development at the heart of the international agenda, and providing a local perspective to global challenges.
Partners from the international community can propose joint ventures, brainstorm on how to influence the agendas, and are offered a unique opportunity to fully get to know and engage with the world of local governments.
You will find here our usual survey to gather your opinion on the 2023 UCLG Retreat. It will be available until 2 March. Please take a few minutes to fill it in to help us continue innovating and co-creating for the next editions of the Annual Retreat!
