OECD Civil Society Portal

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.

How to engage with us


The OECD regularly organises public consultations and other calls for contribution, but also asks for your opinion through campaigns and surveys.


Civil society organisations are welcome to join our many conferences, meetings and workshops as well as webinars.


The OECD provides analysis through reports and data, but also a variety of tools allowing to help you support your work.

Survey on skills-based approaches

The OECD is interested in understanding the use of skills-based approaches in the labour market to identify the challenges and success factors. Also known as ‘skills-first’ approach", it focuses on skills themselves rather than on how they have been acquired and is used in hiring, recruitment, promotion and progression, or training and development.
