Socrates Mexico 2016 – The Future of Work and Skills in the Digital Age

The Future of Work and Skills in the Digital Age

We are living through an extraordinary moment where technology is moving at a rapid pace and is radically changing our way of life, creating new opportunities and raising critical questions. We are moving towards a digital economy, transforming the way we work and live. What will be the impact of this shift? How is technology changing the kinds of jobs people are doing, and the education and skills required to succeed? How will people connect to work in the future? How do institutions and leaders need to change and adapt to ensure shared prosperity? We’ll look at the future of work, and the challenges and opportunities they pose for individuals, businesses, policymakers, and others working in the public interest.
