Learn what local councils are doing throughout Australia, grasp policy issues quickly and concisely and tap into international best thinking.
A joint venture between not-for-profit local authority think tank LGiU and SGS Economics and Planning, LGiU Australia is a policy information membership service dedicated to local government across Australia.
We work to inform our members by providing practical, up-to-the-minute intelligence on policy issues pertinent to local government in Australia. The service draws on information and good practice from all over Australia and around the world to help public servants make policy, support residents and work more effectively with colleagues. Put simply, we help local councils drive forward the ideas and solutions needed to provide sustainable public services in the future.
"LGiU is a leading UK think tank working with local authorities to design and deliver better services for communities. We're proud to partner with LGiU to bring this policy information service to Australia. It's a great tool for local councils to tap into new thinking and practical intelligence quickly and easily."
"Our members value being connected to new ideas and given the intellectual tools to operate effectively. Our daily news service informs members what's happening in local government nationally, our briefings help decision-makers grasp policy issues quickly, and our podcasts introduce new thinking and innovations. LGiU is a hub for local government best thinking."
