The world of work faces transformative changes. Several processes and innovations, such as digitalisation, globalisation, artificial intelligence, but also the need for an ecological transition alter the conditions as well as our understanding of work and employment.


To discuss these challenges from a faith-based point of view, COMECE, together with the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the European Economic and Soclal Committee (EESC) and its faith-based partners, organises an interreligious conference on the future of work aiming to contribute to the recently launched ILO centenary initiative on the future of work.


The event will take place at the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) on 27 November 2018 and will bring together 150 delegates from Churches, Christian and other faith-based organisations, as well as representatives of the EU institutions and Brussels-based organisations.


On this occasion, Mgr. Antoine Hérouard will present the reflection of the COMECE Social Affairs Commission on the Future of work, which will be published at the end of September. 


Language interpretation will be provided in English, French, German and Spanish. In order to facilitate the participation of diverse groups of people from all over Europe, participants in need can apply for financial support for travel and accommodation costs.
