The program this year is rich and diverse, it will be voicing the global south, praising partnership and mutual understanding, enhance belongings to our world mission under UCLG leadership and facilitate space for exchange on journey travelled and new to come. We are confident that Barcelona will be a memorable experience and a stepping stone for our network, joint vision and future perspectives.

We strongly encourage you to carefully read this information note and in particular read the background information on the UCLG Faclities which were launched during the previous edition of the UCLG Retreat in February. During many of the sessions we would like to explore and discuss how we as a working group can best and concretely contribute to the unfolding of these different facilities.
