The ICLEI World Congress 2018 was hosted by the Ville de Montreal and organized by ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability, the leading global network of more than 1,500 cities, towns and regions in over 100 countries committed to building a sustainable future. It is a connection point between local and regional governments worldwide. https://worldcongress2018.iclei.org It was an opportunity for leaders to discover sustainable development projects achieved in Montreal since it is a long term member of ICLEI and sustainable leader in Canada and the world, hence this congress was situated. An international organization, ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability was founded in 1990 as the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. It provides technical consulting, training and information services to build capacity, share knowledge and support local government in the implementation of sustainable development at the local level. https://en.m.wikipedia.org>wiki>ICLEI The Local Government Unit of Science City of Muñoz under the leadership of the Hon.
