Call to action in Edinburgh

More detail on tomorrow's conference can now be found on the Council's main website - here ... short summary:

"The Council is calling on its public sector partners and Edinburgh’s businesses to help support the creation of 20,000 new jobs in the city.

This will be the main theme at a conference being hosted by the City of Edinburgh Council and the Edinburgh Business Forum on Wednesday 12 September to launch an ambitious five year economic strategy for Edinburgh.

Businesses and other partners are being encouraged to join the Edinburgh Guarantee programme to give young people the apprenticeships and work opportunities they need to boost their job prospects.

They are also being asked to get more involved in the city's communities by investing in its social and community enterprises, act as ambassadors for Edinburgh and mentor new entrepreneurs.

City businesses are also being asked to share their knowledge and international connections with the Council to help attract vital new inward investment. Delegates at the event will be invited to contribute their ideas to help drive the strategy forward."
