Innovation in Public Employment in Cities

When: Thursday 18 May 2017 - Thursday 18 May 2017
Where: ,

With employment creation remaining such a high national priority, what instruments and tools do cities have to take Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) to a new level? How can the work undertaken through public employment best support and align with other social and economic priorities in the urban space? What types of work will attract target constituencies such as youth – and open doors for them beyond the employment period?

You are hereby invited to attend a workshop partnership between the Department of Public Works, City Support Programme at National Treasury, South African Cities Network, Government Technical Advisory Centre, the Economies of Regions Learning Network and TIPS, to be held in Pretoria at TIPS, 234 Lange Street, Nieuw Muckleneuk, on 18th May 2017.

This workshop plans to explore these questions and more, with a focus on innovation in the types of work undertaken and on strengthening the social and economic impacts of EPWP. It is timed to allow for new ideas to be incorporated into the planning of Incentive Grant projects, and will look at local and international examples. Through the Cities Support Programme, follow-up support will also be provided to those cities that want to apply innovative approaches in their project selection and design.
