Civil society


  • Share your views on the future of work and skills

    New technologies, globalisation and population ageing are affecting the type and quality of jobs that are available and the skills required to do them. We want to hear your views on this development: Are you worried or confident about the future of your job? Do you think it is likely to change in the future? And how will you keep your skills up-to-date? Let us know! Your opinions will contribute to discussions for better policy making in adult learning in the European Union.

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.

  • I am the Future of Work 
    A people powered initiative by the OECD, which aims to gather stories, insights and experiences about the way the world of work is changing, and the risks and opportunities it raises along the way. Workers, students, job seekers, employers, leaders are all the future of work. It is time to be part of the conversation: Have your say on what is your biggest hope for the future of work.

  • OECD Forum: World in EMotion
    Shifting politics, globalisation, digitalisation, ageing populations – the speed at which they are developing and the breadth of their impact are testing the resilience of our social fabric, calling for a deeper reflection on the set of human values, ethics and aspirations that bind us together, as well as the type of society in which we want to live. While these changes may create new opportunities for some, they are a frightening prospect for others. The Forum will reflect on what needs to happen to ensure such changes and opportunities bring us together, rather than divide us.
