How do you envision the future of work and the future of learning in 2030?
A group of students, participating in the recent Hackaton on the future of work and the future of learning, discussed various scenarios during the ITCILO event for the ILO’s 24-hour Global Tour.
On Thursday 11 April, the ITCILO took part in the ILO’s 24-hour Global Tour, held to celebrate the Organization’s centenary, and was live for one hour with the futurist Gerd Leonhard as guest speaker, and the participation of Turin Deputy-Mayor for Innovation, Paola Pisano.
Three young hackathon participants discussed how their teams worked together to create five design solutions to one main challenge: How do you envision the future of work and the future of learning in 2030?
The event sought to cultivate fresh perspectives on some of today’s most pressing issues, such as identity, equality and our relationship with technology.
Some of the key points that emerged were:
- The future is not a scary place, provided we embrace digital ethics and find a technological balance;
- We can build a better future if we work together, and involve young people in particular;
- Empathy and foresight can advance social justice and promote decent work.
