From a number of very strong applications, our selection jury, consisting of experts in municipal development and participation, decided in favour of the following five municipalities:
Between May 2022 and October 2023, the pilot project will accompany and support the five selected partner municipalities in setting up and implementing a Municipal Development Advisory Board. In this participation format, representatives from politics/administration, civil society and business will jointly discuss a topic relevant to the future and develop concrete recommendations for action for local decision-making bodies.
We look forward to working closely with such diverse and committed municipalities over the next eighteen months to address relevant future issues in municipal development councils in a sustainable manner.
