RSA Bristol Lunchtime Livestream: How to thrive in a world without work

Fellowship Event

Engine Shed, Bristol

  • Fellowship in Action

Come join us for this lunchtime livestream of a lecture from the RSA into the Junction at the Engine Shed in Bristol.

Come and watch the livestream of 'How to Thrive in a World Without Work’ at the Engine Shed. This lecture will focus on ‘How should we prepare for a world in which there aren’t enough jobs to go around?’

We’re already seeing the impact that automation is having on the world of work and these changes are only set to amplify in the years to come. Contrary to popular belief, many high-skilled jobs are among those under the greatest threat from artificial intelligence, so every sector of the economy must prepare for an increasingly automated future. What will society look like when there is less work available for everyone?

Technological progress could bring about unprecedented prosperity, thus solving the age-old problem of making sure everyone has enough to live on. The challenge, says economist Daniel Susskind, will be to distribute this prosperity fairly, contain the power of Big Tech, and find meaning in lives that no longer have work at their centre.

More information about the lecture and Daniel Susskind can be found on our website.
