Work with us
The OECD is committed to giving a voice to civil society stakeholders and helping ensure that their views are factored into the OECD’s work and hence making the OECD analyses stronger.
We engage with civil society through various ways: advisory committees that represent businesses and trade unions, regular consultations, as well as conferences and workshops where civil society organisations are welcome to contribute. Find out more.

- Green Talks Live - Taxing Energy Use 2019: Using taxes for climate action
Global energy consumption rose strongly in 2018 along with energy-related CO2 emissions, reaching a new all-time high. This is disconcerting, as meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement will require deep cuts in emissions. Taxing polluting sources of energy is an effective way to curb emissions that harm the planet and human health. Where do countries stand in deploying energy and carbon taxes to reach environmental and climate goals? How can governments step up efforts? Join Jonas Teusch from the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration on 15 October at 16:00 CEST to discuss the key findings from the OECD publication, Taxing Energy Use 2019, which presents new and original data on energy and carbon taxes in OECD and G20 countries, and in international aviation and maritime transport.

- Metrics that Make a Difference: International Conference on the Policy Uses of Well-being and Sustainable Development Indicators in Latin America and the Caribbean
This conference, organised by the OECD in partnership with the European Commission, ECLAC, DANE, DNP and the Universidad del Rosario, will bring together high-level policy makers together with statisticians, academics and civil society representatives to share perspectives from all stages of the policy process on how to maximise the use of multidimensional indicators for improving people’s lives. It will focus on the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) context and will also reflect on the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, and the metrics that are necessary to operationalise this complex agenda in national planning and international cooperation strategies. It is being undertaken as part of the EU Facility on Development in Transition in Latin America and the Caribbean. Participation to this event is by invitation only.

- Green Growth and Sustainable Development Forum
The OECD will hold its 2019 Green Growth and Sustainable Development (GGSD) Forum on the theme of “Greening heavy and extractive industries: innovation and fiscal implications”. The Forum will address how the shift to a circular and low-carbon economy, which is required to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (among others) on Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12) and on Climate Action (SDG 13), might impact on future demand and business models of extractive and heavy industries, such as oil & gas, mining, steel and cement, and its fiscal implications.
26-27 November 2019, OECD Headquarters, Paris, France
- OECD Local Development Forum
The 2019 Forum will bring together hundreds of local development practitioners, entrepreneurs and social innovators to share good practices about how employment and skills programmes are meeting employer demand (especially SMEs), what’s being done to help people and places catch-up, and how social innovation can be leveraged to create an inclusive local economy. Registration will open in September.
