Over the past 15 years, the OECD Forum has grown to become a major international conference that debates the most pressing social and economic challenges confronting society. At the OECD Forum, policies and ideas are shared by a growing community of leaders and influencers from government, business, civil society and academia. This site is designed to allow the OECD Forum community to extend their discussions and exchanges year-round and to expand the network to include those who cannot attend the conference in person.

The Forum Network is open for anyone to browse, read and share its content. To comment and contribute, you will need to join the network as a Friend - anyone may join. Friends are able to post comments and to ask questions (comments and questions will be moderated) and you may be invited to become a contributor.

In joining and being active in the Forum Network, you will gain insights into global trends that are shaping our societies, take part in exchanges that address the challenges we face and enrich the OECD's thinking on these issues.

Welcome to a new way to debate the issues, welcome to the Forum Network, hosted by the OECD.
