- possibility to create an unlimited number of municipality-specific indicators, with information coming for example from their administrative databases (the base version does not give access to this possibility)
- possibility to create, analyse and disseminate an unlimited number of municipal good practices (the base version only allows the insertion of information about 5 good practices)
- possibility to export all the contents related to the municipality through editable documents such as Excel (database) or Word (synoptic report) (the base version does not give access to this possibility)
Technical support by the ODSlocal team
- privileged access to helpdesk, with the possibility of adapting some functionalities to specific requirements of the municipality (the base version does not give access to that possibility)
Possibility of participation in a Capacity Building Programme for Local Sustainability, evolving over time, which integrates two dimensions:
“ODSlocal - Empowering agents for the 2030 Agenda”
- Access to the ODSlocal training package, provided in a mostly online synchronous and asynchronous format, organised by modules on the 2030 Agenda, aimed at building capacity for the territorialisation of the SDGs and familiarising with methodologies for the broad involvement of local agents. Each module includes three components: video presentations, exercises and case studies.
Municipalities subscribing to the advanced version of the ODSlocal Platform have access to the full contents of the training package (total of 6 modules) and to follow-up meetings/clarification of doubts (the basic version only gives access to the first two modules). The access to the training package is open to an unlimited number of technicians from the municipality.
Local Sustainability Laboratories
