18 September 1999 - 18 September 1999
Netherlands

The International Institute for the Urban Environment (IIUE) and the International Urban Development Association (INTA) are organising a summer course on "Making (it) work! - Action plans for local sustainable jobs" in Delft, The Netherlands, from 18 to 24 September 1999. The European Commission, DG V, is supporting the course.

The aim of the course is to train young professionals in how to use social and financial instruments for the creation of successful sustainable employment in the social economy. The course will address the creation and development of strategic visions and concrete working plans, partnerships, support structures, communication tools and funding mechanisms.

Course participants will explore practical models of how local sustainability initiatives can be introduced into the mainstream economy. The training will be intensive and interactive, with lectures, group work, case studies excursions and discussions. Lectures will be given by European experts and local practitioners who participate in the project 'Developing the economy from within' (DEW). The European Commission's DG V (employment, industrial relations and social affairs) has supported this project, within the framework of the Third System and Employment pilot action on job creation.

The course is aimed at young professionals in public and private institutions, as well as non-governmental organisations, responsible for local and sustainable development. It is open to participants from the Member States of the European Union.
