Virtual Event: Local Government National Insights – Summer Edition


Event Overview Delivering Services that Protect our Environment and Prioritize Social Equity and Strong Governance With the increased interest in the impact of climate change and social equity, municipalities are getting to grips with how to prepare for a more resilient future. The pandemic has pushed ESG themes (Environment, Social, and Governance) to the very top of the agenda. The growing population is now demanding more sustainable infrastructure and resources, amidst economic shortfalls. Citizens are becoming increasingly vocal about the need for municipalities to establish a clear framework for safeguarding economic and social inclusion. By adopting ESG strategies, local governments can simultaneously create opportunities and investments to tackle sustainability, improve quality of life and pursue smart growth. Municipalities are leveraging opportunities to develop a roadmap for establishing and meeting ESG benchmarks and priorities. Critical to local governments’ success, is their ability to learn from best practice and fulfill their social and economic mandate while accounting for the welfare of all their constituents. The summer edition of Public Sector Network’s Local Government virtual event series will equip attendees with the tools and insights they need to move towards a more sustainable future and improve economic and social inclusion.
