Local Agenda 21 in a New Format. Free Download of LA21 Brochure

21.4.2016
Local Agenda 21 (LA21) is a progressive method and a tool for managing the quality of public administration. It helps cities, municipalities and regions to apply the sustainable development principles at local and regional levels. In cooperation with the public and local partners (NGOs, schools, businesses), it aims to ensure the quality of development of a particular place, and to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of services provided by local authorities to its citizens. It is focused not only on the inside of the local authority (quality of strategic planning and management, efficient use of finances) but primarily on the outside (systematic public involvement, continuous communication, open sharing of experience etc.). In accordance with the activities of the LA21 Working Group of the Government Council for Sustainable Development, Healthy Cities has prepared a new and user-friendly publication to accompany this tool. It is also possible to find basic information regarding various LA21 categories monitoring the quality of municipalities´ procedures, including detailed description of criteria.
