What we're about
The future of work is a hot topic right now and set to stay that way for a long time to come. This group is for those who want to explore how technologies like automation, robotics and artificial intelligence are shaping how we work, where we work and the skills we need to work.
With conflicting information from the experts leaving plenty of room for debate around what impact technologies will have, now’s the time to start the conversation about how we are going to adjust our social and economic structures in light of this new reality.
This group is for those who share an optimism for the opportunities technology presents while appreciating the need for debate, discussion and boldness as we approach huge societal change. Never before has there been such an opportunity to recast the social contract, to eliminate poverty, cure diseases and have fulfilling lives spent doing what we want to be doing. It’s in our hands whether we make this the greatest thing that humans have ever done or history’s biggest missed opportunity.
How do we want to live our lives in this new world? A world where we don’t all have to work 40 hours a week to survive as dignified human beings. How might we survive without getting an income five days a week? What does it mean to be a valuable member of society and to be human, working with digital colleagues? What other options does this open up for us as a civilisation?
The group meets once a month to swap ideas on a theme or topic central to the future of work and to contribute to the broader conversation in this space. Inspiring guest speakers kick the meet-ups off.
