"This Congress will be a moment where local and regional leaders can exchange on their experiences on how they manage policy works at local level to include all global agendas at theirs political and action plans".

Frédéric Vallier, Secretary General of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR).

"It's time to know the progress we have made in implementing the SDGs and it's very important to also include civil society organisations, citizens and other kind of stakeholders to learn more and exchange experiences"

Marlène Siméon, Director of Platforma

"The UCLG Congress is the preeminent local governments meeting. In this Summit, we have an opportunity to try to influence and strengthen the quality of the debate, because without empowered local governments and without a renewed multilevel governance we can't achieve the implementation of SDGs"

William Cobbet, Director of Cities Alliance.
