The OECD Forum
6-7 June 2017
This year, the OECD Forum will see thousands of attendees from civil society, government - including heads of state - the private sector, trade unions, academia and the media meet at the OECD's own conference centre in Paris.
In 2017, hundreds of high level speakers and a diverse mixture of traditional and innovative session formats will explore the theme 'Bridging Divides', with topics including inclusive growth, digitalisation and trust. While the programme is still being confirmed, past heavy-hitting speakers include the likes of Helen Clark, Yvo de Boer, and Elizabeth Nyamayaro.
As well as attending the conference, our delegates will have the chance to meet with NGOs and other stakeholders in Paris to explore the Forum's issues in more depth, and work out where our world's headed.

Jess is also undertaking a Master of Laws in International Law, focusing where possible on Space Law and Regulation. She is particularly interested in new innovative technologies and businesses that are emerging from the space sector as a result of small satellites, which have the potential to assist in the digitalisation of our lives, and are making the use of space more accessible to all nations.
