The working world of the future will be different from today’s. Will it also be better? Will we work in a more self-determined and healthy way? Will we go back to university or learn a new occupation at the age of 50? Are machines taking away our work, or are they paving the way for innovations and productivity gains which create new jobs?
We raised these questions and many more in a Green Paper on "Work 4.0", and have since discussed them as part of a broad public dialogue: with experts from the social partners, associations, businesses and academia, and with members of the public.
