The Project LG Action "Networking action to involve Local Governments in the EU and international energy and climate debate"was an important local government (LG) networking action aimed at presenting LG positions relevant to climate and energy to a range of actors: local government associations and networks, national governments, the European Commission and feeding into the post-2012 climate negotiations.

LG Action was co-funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe programme.
