Futures Exchange is putting together a collection of essays on the future of work, and they are looking for submissions. The goal is two-fold: to identify weaknesses in the current systems that transport children from school into the workplace, and to suggest alternatives. Although the focus will predominantly be the UK, we’re eager to have views from around the world. What does work look like for the next generation, and how do we prepare them for it? Common assumptions about the future include increased job insecurity, fewer worker protections, a shrinking middle class and a growing precariat class, increases in debt burden (both university and other), increased competition for jobs from abroad, increasing inequality, and shifts in our definitions of success, in our aspirations, and in our living arrangements. Essays should be between 500 and 1,000 words. Deadline for submissions is September 9. To contribute, email me at email@example.com
