About the ICLEI Community

The ICLEI Community is a facilitated online networking platform that allows for local governments to share best practices in real time.  The Community operates as a resource hub, training center, and live forum all in one, centered around various work streams supported by ICLEI expert staff. Settings allow for work streams to be open for community-wide input or closed to subsets of users, such as for state or regional groups. The ICLEI Community aim is to move local governments forward through a co-generation space for structured and actionable technical assistance.
