The Daejeon UCLG World Congress is a massive gathering of all members of the UCLG, which is the only international organization of local governments officially recognized by the United Nations. The fact that the Congress is the biggest international event to be held in the city of Daejeon since the Daejeon Expo '93 adds more to its uniqueness and significance.

Since COVID-19, the role of local governments has become ever more important in discussing ways to solve various problems facing the international community, such as global peace and climate change. Under the theme of “Local and Regional Governments Breaking Through as One,” the Daejeon UCLG World Congress will undoubtedly enable over 1,000 local governments to work in harmony and engage in cooperation so as to contribute to the peace and advancement of humanity.
