Different electoral processes have been carried out during 2020 and until 2021 throughout the region. For the ILG student network and the LALP, it is a source of great pride to know that several of the members of this network are part of those new public officials willing to work for their cities, municipalities and countries, designing and implementing public policies that benefit the region, at a crucial moment like the current one where the pandemic has hit immensely. LALP's GCL and ILG alumni networks are essential in maintaining the program's connection with these alumni members, as these active agents of change interact and form a platform through which they promote a multiplier effect throughout the Latin American region. To find out what their main proposals are and how they plan to carry out the position entrusted to them, we invite you to this webinar to have a very dynamic conversation with the Executive Director of LALP, Ricardo Ernst.
