Of Mice and Men - Redux?

Kiev

 

10 years on from chastening and often stunning images of the impact that global recession is having - right now. The Great Depression Revisited? The clothes and the cars and the laptops suggest "not yet", but over the coming months, who knows?

Still, the blooming sunflower in the last shot is a touching piece of photojournalism, suggesting that hope springs eternal or, as Roy Harper put it, "through all destruction flies new dawn".

Questioning Change - Work

Work

 

Forum for the Future identified key questions regarding the future of work:

  • What kind of skills will our future workforce need? How might they be different from the skills needed today? How can educational needs and mindsets shift in response?

  • We also now need to ask, what sort of ‘talent’ will economies need? Where might the precise value in what people can do lie in future? How will this impact pensions and social security? 

  • How will we determine the rights of robots - a new class of workers?

  • What will be the future of unemployment: will more people choose it, or be in temporary/flexible/freelance employment?

  • How will team structures change? Will more people be working in teams, or alone?
