With a series of discussion events across Germany, the “Back to the Working Life of the Future – Visions of Tomorrow’s Work in the Past and Present” project will be brought to the public from June 24, 2018. In Karlsruhe-Durlach, and then in Dortmund, Halle (Saale) and Jena, seniors, youngsters and experts will speak about ideas on the development of gainful employment. Carried out by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and partner institutions in Saxony-Anhalt, the project – one of  19 funding projects of Science Year 2018 – will be concluded with a documentary film.


What work visions were there back in the day? How did people deal with technological and organizational changes, say back in the 1960s and 1970s? Can deductions be made for the present, for our views of the world of work today? It’s with questions like these that the “Back to the Working Life of the Future – Visions of Tomorrow’s Work in the Past and Present” project aims to give historical perspective to the debate on the future of gainful employment fueled by Science Year 2018.
