Welcome to the official website of the 2022 Daejeon United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) World Congress.

The Daejeon UCLG World Congress is a monumental 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 government has become ever more important in discussing ways to solve the 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 ensure that over 1,000 local governments can cooperate in harmony to contribute to the peace and advancement of humanity.

As a city of science that houses key technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution as well as beautiful natural ecosystems, Daejeon will strive to make the Daejeon UCLG World Congress a peaceful and meaningful event that promotes global symbiosis.

Extending a warm welcome once again, the citizens of Daejeon and I hope that you will forever cherish the memories of your stay in the city.


Lee Jang Woo
Mayor of Daejeon Metropolitan City
