The Latvian Association of Local and Regional Governments (LALRG) is a public organisation associating local go­vernments of the Republic of Latvia on voluntary basis. The LALRG functions as a representative, advocate and advisor of the local governments in Latvia and Europe. We contribute to the development of municipal policies, solve common problems and defend interests of local governments. During the last years the LALRG has become fascionate about informing Latvian municipalities about SDGs and their localisation. Seriers of informative seminars have been organised, as well as common activities with youth from Jaunpils municipality have been successfully implemented.
