8th UCLG World Congress - 01.08.2022

Call for the 8th UCLG World Congress in 2025
The triennial UCLG World Congress is a critical moment for the international movement of local and regional governments, gathering local elected representatives and their partners at an event so powerful it demands the spotlight on the global stage. What once began as a meeting point, the Congress has evolved into a complete experience that now encompasses various themes, formats and encapsulates the diversity of our century old movement. This Congress should count on more innovation, interaction, inclusion and input than ever before, culminating not only in our renewed vision, but also in policy documents to guide a unified and collaborative approach to implementing local solutions.
The 2025 Congress should remain a place for mayors, councillors and presidents of regional authorities and their associations to come together, while providing space for the full constituency, and an increasing number of partners, such as the Global Taskforce and other stakeholders.
The new reality has inevitably generated new technological needs. In this sense, the 2025 Congress will need to include a strong hybrid component to allow both in-person and online participation, which will make the Congress more accessible for all of our constituency.
The UCLG Presidency and members of the UCLG World Council are looking for innovative proposals that will be able to accommodate the ideas stated above and host this world‑class event.
Please find here the call for candidatures for the 8th UCLG World Congress with the requirements for presenting a candidature.

If you think your city or local government association can meet this exciting challenge, our World Secretariat very much looks forward to receiving your proposal.

Candidatures should include the following items in one of the three working languages of UCLG (English, French or Spanish): 
  • A letter of motivation explaining why the local/regional authority would like to host the event;
  • An expression of agreement with the Terms of Reference for the 8th UCLG Congress in 2025;
  • Explicit acceptance of the minimum financial and administrative conditions, which will be further defined in cooperation with the Financial Management Committee;
  • A draft budget that will provide an idea of the dimension of the envisaged event;
  • A logistical dossier with information about the venues and facilities;
  • A brief concept note with ideas about possible themes.
For further information or to present a candidature, please write to the attention of the UCLG Secretary General at before 5 September 2022.
