The Local Democracy Academy brings together an international group of leading scholars, post-doctoral scholars, junior researchers, doctoral students, local policy makers and government officials for an intensive week of mutual learning, critical thinking and joint exploration of new ideas and approaches to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The academy is organised around interactive and participatory sessions. Participants are expected to contribute, read, write and actively engage in different sessions. All sessions should have a gender, sustainability and human rights perspective. More information is available here.
