The Future of Work

In co-operation with The Economist

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva

Rapid technological change will mean that, over the course of our working lives, many skills will become obsolete, others will grow in economic importance and traditional career trajectories will be a thing of the past. In a context of constant change, of robotics and of artificial intelligence, this event aims to answer the following question: Is education a future-proof route to stable employment?
