OECD Local Development Forum: Better strategies for stronger communities

15-17 June 2022 | Cork, Ireland | In-person event with live streaming of selected sessions 
 
On the occasion of the 40th Anniversary of the OECD’s Local Employment and Economic Development programme

It’s time to emerge from behind our screens! 
Join us in Cork to reflect on how to improve the quality of local jobs, better leverage community assets and expand economic opportunities and inclusion to create places where all can thrive

About the event

Beyond the shockwaves of COVID-19 and the humanitarian, social and economic pressures sparked by the large scale aggression in Ukraine, broader shifts such as the green transition, digitalisation and demographic change are fundamentally changing the communities where people live, work, create and consume. These changes bring both opportunities and challenges such as the changing geography of jobs and a need to massively rethink and ramp up our skills systems to keep pace with these changes. While these shifts may seem unprecedented, this is not the first time that communities have undergone transformational changes. 
  
What can be learned from how communities have managed such transformations in the past, and what innovative approaches are communities taking to help all places and people emerge stronger and more resilient, together
