About this event
EcoCiv is partnering with One Project to elevate themes of The New Possible through a series of dialogues on global systems change. Our November topic is “The Future of Work: Rethinking Labor Toward an Ecological Civilization.”
Why do we work? Is it simply to earn a wage so we can purchase staples needed for survival? What if our basic needs were automatically met? Would we still have a reason to work? The modern paradigm has framed the purpose of human labor as serving the economy. But what would labor look like if the economy served the long-term wellbeing of people and the planet? Exploring a range of interconnected issues from technological unemployment, postcapitalism, human dignity, and more, our panel of experts will discuss the future of work and the need for shifting labor paradigms for an ecological civilization.
The live, online event will include a 60-minute moderated panel discussion, followed by 30 minutes of breakout room discussions for all attendees. Join us to learn more about promising paths for the future of work.
