Zoom online platform
In view of the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic and following the cancellation of the face-to-face meeting of the UCLG Executive Bureau, scheduled from 28 to 30 May in Rome, the UCLG Presidency proposes to convene a virtual Executive Bureau on the same dates. The City of Rome has expressed their commitment to keep working with us and reiterated their interest in holding a UCLG meeting in the future.
The members of the UCLG Executive Bureau from UCLG-Eurasia are Moscow, Kazan, Izhevsk, Yekaterinburg, Rostov-on-Don, Grozny, Samara, the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), Turkestan (Kazakhstan), Khujand (Tajikistan), Osh (Kyrgyzstan).
The background documents of the Executive Bureau, for discussion among members, will be available on the UCLGMeets platform as from 22nd May. This platform will not only allow to share the working documents for our meetings but will also provide a space for online discussions and comments on documents. Members will be provided with step by step instructions on how to register, create their profiles and take part in the consultations then.
