Let's work together for better lives

  • At the OECD, we believe that engaging with civil society helps improve our policy recommendations and our impact on society.

  • Governments and policymakers are accountable to a wide array of policy shapers, including civil society. With its subject-matter expertise and field experience, civil society brings vital knowledge to help advance policy change.

  • As public participation, civic engagement, activism and mobilisation evolve, we aim to provide spaces for dialogue, and avenues for civil society contributions.
