Description

New debate of Amsterdam Global Forum will take place on May 16th. at 7pm.

“The Future of Work in the Disruption Era"

Participant Entrance €6

The data driven digital economy is only one dimension of this so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution and Disruption Era.

Fast moving technological and socio-economic innovations are redistributing wealth, resources and power around the world, disrupting and changing the way we live, consume, communicate, relate also changing the nature of work.

The Future of work is one of the many unprecedented challenges facing societies today. Displacement by automation is a reality for millions workers around the world.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are targets for global development adopted in September 2015, set to be achieved by 2030. Goal 8 is "Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all". Rethinking and retooling our economic and social policies is required to achieve this goal.

Technological transformations have always positive and negative impacts on labor markets. How to respond effectively to such challenging societal transition? What should be the role of governments and responsibilities of the private sector in preparing and adapting citizens for the jobs of the future? How can the benefits of new sustainable sources of economic growth in this new economy shared broadly? Does this Era of Disruption and flexible work also require universal services and rights?

Those and other questions will be explored at our debate followed by drinks.
