     Local International Internship Program is an international internship program annually organized by Union of Municipalities of Turkey since 2012 with the aim of providing a 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 in 2012, LOCALINTERNATIONAL provides 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.
