Seminar LU Futura: Longer working life – for whom and under what conditions?


In this second of three seminars on the theme 'Framtidens arbetsliv' (Working life in the future) arranged by LU Futura, in cooperation with CED, the focus is on the ageing society and its consequences on different welfare systems. How can we meet the need for most of us to work more and to stay in the working force for longer? What positive, and negative, consequences could digitalisation have on issues such as working environments and regulation? And how do we handle existent age discrimination? If less people leave the work force at the present retirement ages, who will shoulder the unpaid workload of caring for our elderly and sick in the future?
