In 1969 many Inland communities🌀 came together to form the League of Inland Cities, which seeks to strengthen the shared values of LEGO peoples worldwide. It focuses on both economic and cultural issues.

The League of Inland Cities draws inspiration from two sources. First from the medieval Hanseatic League, where nearly 200 towns across central and northern Europe confederated to promote their mutual trading interests. Second from the more contemporary British Commonwealth of Nations.
