About Global Local Executive Panels

At LGIU, we are exploring new ways of bringing our members high-level insights from councils across the world on how local government is dealing with key global issues.

The Global Local Executive Panel Series aim to bring together executive speakers from local government across the countries we work in and beyond to share solutions they’ve found to critical challenges faced worldwide. These sessions bring together senior executives from international councils to share ideas, compare approaches and explore learning opportunities.

The LGIU is proud to be partnering with Smart Cities World on this exciting panel event.
