Consultancy to accompany the UCLG 2022 Town Hall process
Following the outcomes of the Durban Town Hall, continued spaces for dialogue and interaction between different stakeholders and the political leadership of the local and regional governments constituency were created. The Live Learning and the #CitiesAreListening Experiences discovered how to bring about a resilient recovery by including all stakeholders. These dialogues also shaped UCLG’s international advocacy and inclusive, sustainable thinking for the future.The 2022 UCLG Town-Hall aimed to renew the structured dialogue between the local and regional governments constituency and internationally organized civil society and to strengthen the presence of international partners and 3 cross-cutting caucuses (youth, feminism and accessibility). The Town Halls created unique spaces for dialogue and interaction between internationally organized civil society constituencies and the political leadership of the local and regional governments constituency. GlobalCAD supported, under this activity, the identification of key strategic messages throughout the phases of the four Town Halls and their respective processes. To that end, the GlobalCAD worked to analyse the conclusions of the UCLG meets, carry out consultations with the main participants of every Town Hall to obtain the inputs and then translated them into strategic messages. These messages were then defined in accordance with every step of phase of the Town Halls and adapted to the specific field of work of each of them.
