Community wealth building at scale: Experiences and lessons from Scotland
24 January 2023 | 11:00 - 12:00 CET via Zoom
WHAT’S THE ISSUE?
Communities across the OECD are increasingly integrating community-wealth building approaches into their local development strategies, but Scotland has been a leader in trying to bring this work to scale. Join this discussion with Tom Arthur, the Scottish Minister for Public Finance, Planning and Community Wealth to unpack not only what community wealth building entails, but also what it means to move beyond individual efforts in specific communities to a broader approach.
ABOUT THE EVENT
This webinar is part of a series of events to mark the 40th anniversary of the OECD Local Employment and Economic Development (LEED) Programme, including reflecting on the lessons learned from the past 40 years of the local development, and the direction that needs be taken for the future. LEED was created in 1982, when OECD governments were struggling to provide solutions to the jobs crisis of the day and saw a need for an international forum to share innovative approaches to local job creation, social inclusion and economic development. Since then, it has continued to bring together policy makers and practitioners from around the world to identify, evaluate and disseminate promising approaches to local development.
