Summary
The ELP on Accelerating City Transformation for Inclusion, Growth and Sustainability continues to improve on the high standard of our previous programmes providing a week long immersive learning event that builds both on the leadership capabilities and technical knowledge in your cities. We are excited by the opportunity to bring the new leadership teams, across our cities, into a common understanding of the urban challenge facing them, and engage on some of the programmatic responses, in a manner that strengthens the political-administrative interface in individual cites and builds a sense of community across leadership of our eight (8) metros.​
