rethinking the fUTURE oF wORK

2017 aftermovie  


         Employment is changing dramatically. The rise of the platform economy has introduced a convenient way to match those in need of services to those who can offer them, and all with a click of a button. The number of so called 'gig workers' or 'platform workers' is rising. Therefore, we wonder, what will the future of work look like?              

          The 25&26 of October 2018, academics, policymakers, business leaders and platform workers will come together to experience the future of work and find ways to shape it. We will convene this group of people during a two-day conference held in Amsterdam. This international and multidisciplinary conference offers a vibrant space to collectively rethink work in the platform economy. Participants will get the latest insights, not only from policymakers, academics and business leaders, but also from gig workers themselves.


Future of Work Manifesto


In addition to an empowered and inspired audience, the outcome of the conference will include a Future of Work Manifesto encapsulating the main topics discussed and conclusions reached during debates and creative sessions.
