LEED Programme (Local Economic and Employment Development)

LEED Consultative Fora

 

The LEED Partners Club Network (LPCN) is a channel of resources and expertise for the LEED Directing Committee. Membership of the Partners Club allows partners to participate in the activities of its four fora, created to reflect the different interests of LEED Partners and to reinforce the activities of the LEED Programme:

  • The The Forum on Partnerships and Local Governance, chaired by Michael Förschner, Head of Unit, Austrian Ministry for Labour and Social Affairs, is principally linked to the work of LEED Activity 1 on employment and local governance;
  • The Forum on Entrepreneurship, chaired by François Hurel, General Director of the French Chartered Accountants Association, is linked to the work of LEED Activity 2 on entrepreneurship;
  • The Forum on Social Innovations, chaired by Andy Westwood, Special Advisor to the Rt Hon John Denham MP, is linked to the work of LEED Activity 3 on social inclusion;
  • The The Forum for Development Agencies and Investment Strategies, chaired by Greg Clark, Advisor at the Office of the UK Deputy Prime Minister, is principally linked to the work of LEED Activity 4 on development agencies and investment strategies.

Each forum’s Chairperson is a recognised authority in his or her field and acts as a counsellor to the LEED Programme. The Chairs of the fora are often invited -- as experts -- to attend meetings of the LEED Directing Committee to present initiatives that may be of particular interest to the Committee. Meetings of the fora are often scheduled to coincide with meetings of the LEED Directing Committee in order to create further opportunities for collaboration between LEED Partners and LEED Delegates.
