Proceedings of the academy

Over the course of five days, between December 14-18, ICLD organized the Local Democracy Academy, a place where representatives of local governments and researchers from all over the world meet to share and exchange ideas. The theme – Global Disruptions and Local Democracy for a Post-Covid World – generated a lot of interest, and the lessons learned seem more pertinent than ever. The Academy offered four core learning experiences for the participants: A panel debate; thematic sessions; training sessions; and AIMDAY– a Q&A concept that connects practitioners and researchers to discuss solutions for the most pressing problems facing local governments.
