The green transition will have an impact on future work and labor markets. Some industries will benefit, while others will see the demand for their products, and the conditions for their business deteriorate. In the longer run, this means that new (green) competencies will be required and some jobs will increase and new will be invented. At the same time, other jobs will decrease or even disappear. What this structural change will look like depends on the political path chosen for the transition and what the voters demand, as well as on technological progress. Ultimately, it’s also dependent on the environmental consequences of today’s societies, which may force us to change whether we like it or not.
During this seminar, we will discuss the future of work and employment, which we now may only see the contours of. To do this we have three prominent speakers:
🎤Ann Pettifor, economist, author, and director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics (PRIME).
🎤Tomas Kåberger, affiliated professor at Chalmers University of Technology, and member of the Swedish Climate Policy Council (Klimatpolitiska rådet)
🎤Lise Nordin, former Member of Parliament, now regional developer in Region Västra Götaland.
Please note that only participants affiliated with Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg participating will be able to submit questions via Zoom.
