Work Futures competition

What does ’the future of work’ mean to you? Share your thoughts for the chance to win!

Work as we know it, the nine-to-five, standard form of employment with fair working conditions, has become the exception rather than the norm. In its place, precarious and uncertain work has emerged as technologies like artificial intelligence, automation and the digital platform economy are displacing workers, disrupting workplaces, and irrevocably changing peoples’ working lives. But the future of work also presents incredible opportunities; for young people to have their voices heard, for new forms of collective action, and to eliminate the worst jobs. We can all play a role in shaping the ‘future of work’ we want to see.

We want to hear YOUR voice!

What does the future of work mean to you? What is your experience of work, and the future of work? What should the future of work be? 

Submit a piece of writing (500 words or less), a visual based artwork or a video (3 minutes or less) on the theme: “The Future of Work is…”
