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.

  • Webinar: Helping our youngest to learn and grow: Policies for early learning
    Research has shown that attendance at early childhood education and care programmes can have a significant impact on children’s cognitive, social and emotional development, and on their performance in school – and in life – later on. But the magnitude of the benefits also depends on the quality of the services provided. Andreas Schleicher, Director of the OECD Directorate for Education and Skills, will present the policies promoting high-quality early learning and will also discuss what we know about children’s use of technology.
