#OurDay 2018

A day for local government to come together for the biggest ever online celebration of the people who keep our communities running.


We are happy to announce that this year's #OurDay will take place on 20 November! 

The 24 hour social media marathon gives everyone who works or volunteers in local public services the chance to share their stories of how they improve the quality of life of residents. 

Last year more people, local authorities and other organisations than ever took part. Close to 14,000 contributors posted 45,083 tweets, reaching more than 31 million people.

As a result, #OurDay trended number 1 in the UK for the largest part of the day, as well as first worldwide in the English language, and this year is going to be bigger than ever!

Keep an eye on this page over the coming weeks, and follow us on twitter at @LGAComms, to find out what we've got planned.
