This joint initiative by the European Commission Enlargement Directorate-General and the OECD LEED Programme is focused on providing an assessment of the current local development capacity in view of EU accession in the EU Candidate countries and potential candidates in the Western Balkans.
This conference presented the report prepared for Slovenia as part of the OECD LEED "Improving social inclusion at the local level through the social economy" project in the framework of the Forum on Social Innovations.
Within the conference discussing how shrinkage has become a pressing problem in many parts of Europe, the LEED programme is organising a workshop which especially focuses on policies and programs to foster skills, employment development and job creation in areas of shrinkage.
This LEED project will assess the job creation potential of the social economy in various institutional frameworks, examine the conditions under which the contribution of social economy organisations to employment can be maximised and identify obstacles and possible solutions.
This LEED project will examine the capacity of local economies to support new enterprise creation and the development of small and medium enterprises (SMEs), including in the social enterprise sector, and how it can be enhanced through local economic and employment development policies.
This study will analyse how selected local areas/industry clusters identify the specific skills needed to support green growth and how related skills policies and practices can be made more effective in supporting their provision and accelerating transition to a low-carbon economy.
The project will identify the policy levers and instruments that can be helpful in the design of strategies to accompany the transition to older local labour markets, and identify how national policy frameworks can best support these transformations.
