Our webinar series on Education, Jobs, and Skills involve IURC-NA cities and key stakeholders in a peer-to-peer learning environment to discuss and share challenges and best practices to build long-term learning, networking, and working relationships.
This second session focused on Innovative Local Economic Development- Programmes and Strategies for Post Covid-19 Recovery. The session was moderated by Tricia Hackett, Senior Sustainable Urban Development Expert, and included presentations from:
