08: Work to Live, or Live to Work? – Changing Working Environments

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

New working models based on mobile technologies are resulting in a new type of interaction between individuals and organisations. In many places, people are already flexible in choosing their working hours and places of work. What are the potential social consequences of these changes in gainful employment? What are the risks and opportunities? In this workshop-like breakout session we will be discussing issues like “9 to 5 vs. always on”, “home vs. office vs. anywhere”, “labour law vs. the right to work”, “digital natives and digital naives” with renowned experts.
