The world of work faces transformative changes. Several processes and innovations, such as digitalisation, accelerating globalisation, artificial intelligence as well as the need for an ecological transition alter the conditions and our understanding of work and employment.

In order to respond to these challenges, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) has launched a Future of Work Centenary Initiative as one of seven initiatives that mark the ILO’s 100th anniversary in 2019.

Churches and their faith-based partners in Europe aim to contribute to this global dialogue bringing in expertise and insights from their movements and organisations as well as their socio-ethical reflections.

The conference Shaping the Future of Work brings together representatives of Churches, religious communities and faith-based organisations in the field in order to give a profound contribution to the ILO initiative.

In three panel debates, EU representatives, experts and practitioners of Christian, Jewish as well as Muslim faith will discuss the challenges of a changing world of work and assess new opportunities to shape the current transformation for the benefit of all members of society.

First Vice-President Mairead Mc-Guinness will give opening remarks, Rabbi Avi Tawil will be part of the first panel discussion.
