The theme of the Future of Tourism in Natural Areas project (Tour.Nat) is tourism management in natural and protected areas at the time of Covid-19. The project intends to build an agile living laboratory of practical seminars, individual research, working groups, creative sessions, interactive discussions, and online tutoring.
The Summer School, at his fourth edition, is conceived as a training opportunity for municipal administrators to acquire an open mind-set towards innovation on issues of integrated local development and programming.
The School is organising specialised courses on socio-economic development and creating an international platform to exchange experiences and knowledge between public officers and practitioners from OECD member and non member countries that deals with cooperation and local development issues.
Along with the tourism industry, cultural and creative sectors are among the most affected by the current coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis. The OECD joined forces with its partners to collaboratively provide a rapid assessment of the impacts and to start defining the policy responses needed from local and national governments to alleviate the short and long-term effects of the crisis on the cultural and creative sectors.
The OECD Spatial Productivity Lab (SPL) is a dedicated research laboratory that works with local and global partners to improve our understanding of the spatial dimension of productivity growth, the relevance of links between different types of areas and how regional policy can facilitate productivity growth, creation of better jobs and increased well-being.
The Summer Academy, a three-year project 2018-2020, provides training for policy makers and representatives of cultural and creative industries (CCIs). The third edition took place on 27-30 April 2020 in virtual format.
