Registration for the 2019 European Local democracy week is open!

Local and regional authorities of the 47 Member States of the Council of Europe are invited to register on our website to take part in the 2019 edition of the ELDW, a pan-European initiative aimed at boosting local democracy and citizen participation, which is coordinated by the Congress since 2007.


Under the theme “Local democracy: building trust”, chosen for the editions 2019-2020, you are encouraged to organise activities throughout the year, culminating in a flagship event during the week of 15 October. You will find more information on the leading theme of the year and thematic ideas here
