The Launch of the UCLG Peace Prize
On the 5th until the 8th of November the World Council from the United Cities and Local Government (UCLG) will be held in Madrid.
The UCLG is the networks of local governments and cities that cooperate and work together to combat the challenges that cities and local governments face. These challenges range from urban violence to climate change. The World Council is the forum where the leaders and representatives of cities and local governments gather to discuss these problems, as well as how these can be turned into opportunities.
