Local International Internship Program is an international internship program annually organized by Union of Municipalities of Turkey since 2012 with the aim of providing local governance training to the participants through instructions, practical examples and field visits including social activities and trips to various cities in Turkey. Since the first program, LOCALINTERNational has been providing an international training environment to a wide range of participants from European, Asian and Middle Eastern countries to learn, socialize and see the good practices along with the examples of municipal work.

This year, LOCALINTERNational 2018 will take place between 05-15 August with the participation of new graduates and last year students of universities. As the previous ones the program will facilitate trainings, field visits and social-cultural activities for future local leaders. Our Union looks forward to hosting valuable young participants and to provide them with a beneficial local governance experience.
