Once upon a time – Local Democracy!
This spot aims to raise awareness of the importance of strong local government for enhancing the quality of local life. As the level of government closest to local communities, local government is often better placed for responding to local needs, thanks to better knowledge of local people and their culture and traditions. It was produced by the Council of Europe's Centre of Expertise for Local Government Reform, as part of its programme to strengthen local and regional government capacity in Ukraine. The CELG is the body of the Council of Europe which supports member states in the delivery of good democratic local government. It was set up by Heads of State and Government when they met for a third summit in Warsaw in May 2005.
