We’d like to point to a special workshop session "Work fiction: New Working Time Design 2030 +". After discussing the impact of increasing networking, demographic change, and technological progress, the participants thought about the presumed social implications.
As probable implications have been identified
working time changes,
increasing technological based work,
more self-determination, autonomy and individual responsibility at work.
In a more speculative way, the future of work was disputed as offering
new forms of co-operation,
new legal forms, employment contracts and social benefits.
The workshop session closed with a critical discussion of how our future societies will look like, emphasizing the need to arrange a desirable future of work now.
Our remarks refer to a workshop report only available in German language.
