​“Local Voices for a Better World”
The 5th UCLG World Summit took place in Bogotá, capital of Colombia from 13 to 15 October 2016. The Summit seeks to reinvigorate the international municipal movement and strengthen the global network of local and regional leaders by creating a platform, share experiences, and learn from one another.
 
The summit was an opportunity for local and regional government stakeholders to share ideas and projects relating to the challenges faced by cities, especially those undergoing rapid growth.
 
For the first time in history, the World Congress coincided with a United Nations Conference on Sustainable Urban Development – the Habitat III Conference – which will take place a few days after the Summit, from 17 to 20 October 2016, in Quito, Ecuador.
 
The theme of the 2016 Summit was “Local Voices for a Better World” and  will see over 3,000 locally elected leaders and practitioners in attendance.
 
From Bogotá to Quito, the Summit enabled practitioners to promote the recommendations, practices and experiences of local and regional authorities.
 
As a cooperating and supporting Partner of UCLG, MILE coordinated a learning session on the Art of Strategic Facilitation during the Summit. In this workshop participants actively explored some of the essential soft skills for good facilitation.
 
The Summit utilized innovative formats of interaction that afforded a space for participants to express and share views.
