The podcast has returned to celebrate the first birthday of Global Local in both its newsletter and podcast form!  Over the past year, our Global Local service has helped us connect together a worldwide community of local government members and advocates to share leading innovation and insights on a wide range of crucial topics. From dealing with potholes to humanitarian concerns, Global Local has already tackled over 50 different topics that are important to those at the heart of local democracy. Check out our birthday edition here to see a round-up of all our big achievements so far.  In this episode, host Ingrid Koehler and LGIU's Chief Executive Jonathan Carr-West come together to chat about this exciting milestone along with all the big plans that are in store for Global Local's future. This includes the launch of LGIU's first ever individual subscription service – which means now anyone can sign up to start receiving a wide range of exclusive benefits, usually only available to members.  More information on the Global Local and how to sign up! 
In this Global Local Podcast episode, your host, Ingrid Koehler, gives you a taste of her hometown as she interviews Blake Lay, the mayor of Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. As the ‘birthplace of Southern Gospel’ and the home of an annual festival, Mayor Lay talks about how cultural heritage and a thriving performing arts scene helps a small town support economic prosperity. In a rural area with few educational opportunities and a declining industrial base, Mayor Lay outlines how they even brought a new university campus and redesigned an old, enormous factory into an ‘industrial mall’.
