As a central part of the All Town Halls session that took place within the context of the 2022 UCLG Retreat, the General Assembly of Partners and the other leading organizations presented a headline from the future and an image accompanying this headline. The idea was to allow ourselves to co-create from a bold and futuristic perspective.

Reaching Global Goals for Sustainable Urban Development and Climate Change Will Be Achieved Through Rebuilding Trust Among All
When we think of holding hands, it gives us a way forward. We need to rebuild at all levels. From national to the neighbor, at all levels of civil society and among the spheres we talked about. The key is a strong foundation on local. We must have a strong foundation represented by the acronym TAP:
- T stands for time, it will take time and guardianship to build trust. We need to begin today and keep working on it everyday until 2042 and beyond.
- A is for attributes to build on the spheres, we need to compromise and build consensus.
- P is for participation.
