OECD Local Development Forum 2024 - Building Bridges, Shaping Tomorrow

PLACES live:
Local Initiatives Marketplace 

Are you interested in presenting your programme or initiative to a global audience?

Here is your chance! We are giving you the spotlight to present local initiatives with a proven track record and/or innovative approach to catalysing change in the community to an audience of hundreds. We especially encourage participants from OECD countries who work on employment and skills, inclusion, the green transition and maximising the local socio-economic impacts of infrastructure investment to seize this opportunity and apply. 

Selected participants are invited to showcase their programme during the PLACES live: Local Initiatives Marketplace networking session at the Forum in either Malmö (24 September) or Copenhagen (25 September). Additionally, selected participants will have a virtual exhibitor space on the conference website and the opportunity to feature their case on the OECD’s PLACES (Providing Local Actors with Case Studies, Evidence and Solutions) portal. Launched in 2023, the portal brings the best practices and policy briefs to you in an easily accessible, quick-read format. Tell us how you are shaping the future by filling out the form through the link below.  

We look forward to learning more about the work you do!
