12th Annual Meeting: Creativity, jobs and local development (Venice, Italy)

 

 12th Annual Meeting of the OECD LEED Forum on Partnerships and Local Development

CREATIVITY, JOBS AND LOCAL DEVELOPMENT 

18th-19th April 2016 | Venice, Italy

This year the Forum focused on creativity, jobs and local development. We examined how localities can support culture and creative industries as a source of knowledge and job creation and how the creative industry can act as a powerful driving force areas such as tourism, urban regeneration, and social inclusion. We also looked into the link between education and training and job quality, expanding apprenticeships to new players, and innovation in education, including new ways to build entrepreneurial mind-sets in schools and Universities. The aim also was to look at how to build inclusive labour markets, through for example investing in skills and early years and ensuring accessibility. These discussions contributed to the final debate on how to unleash the transformative power of social innovation for inclusive local development.
