Making the Most of International Relationships
This Innovation In-depth features three local authorities making the most of their international links in different ways:
- Birmingham City Council explores how to reboot its European strategy following the UK’s departure from the European Union (EU).
- Southampton City Council signs off an ambitious modern twinning agreement with Miami-Dade County, Florida.
- Councils in Warwick and Leamington play a supporting role to aid the work of local charity One World Link in its engagement with Sierra Leone.
Look outwards, not inwards, and councils will find that positive and proactive civic leadership carries weight on the world stage and brings substantial benefits to the people and places they serve.

The Innovation Series
Innovation Exchanges give participants from our member councils a space to step away from day-to-day activities and engage with peers from across the country. Each session addresses a big challenge or opportunity facing councils and their communities. Sessions are peer-led and practically-focused, so participants come away insights, ideas and learning to share with their teams.
