Example

Porto Alegre

"Local Solidary Governance aims to demonstrate that the city is ready to create alternatives that remove the boundaries imposed by internal inequalities, bringing a leap in the quality of the city’s social management, with its sights on the Sustainable development of its districts, territories and neighbourhoods. The project strives to promote a reformulation of the relationship between public authorities and society and the municipal administration model itself.

Institutionally, PGSL is seen to be innovative by basing public administration on the following principles: plurality (recognizing that society consists of multiple differences), dialog (contributing towards society becoming a system of connections that are always open and respectful), and consensus (forming a community of projects and pacts for social responsibility for sustainable development).
