Sunday Night Live: "It's the end of the world as we know it"

It’s the end of the world as we know it: technology, automation and the future of work

"As the Labour Party embarks on the first steps of developing its 2020 Manifesto, with the launch of the Your Britain Agenda 2020 Policy Commissions, Sunday Night Live will examine what Labour needs to do to build economic credibility as the UK and the rest of the world prepares for the 4th Industrial Revolution which will fundamentally alter the way we live, earn and work.

Focusing on arguably the key priority policy area, this interactive and participatory session with keynote speakers and breakout groups will unpack the key economic, social and political dynamics that need to shape Labour’s Building a productive economy proposition; at a time when technological innovation is evolving at an exponential pace, disrupting almost every industry in every country and marking the transformation of entire systems of production, management and governance.

In addition to inputting into a Sunday Night Live submission to the Labour Party’s National Policy Forum by the 8th June, this session will explore:
  • How the Labour Party can address some of the most pressing economic issues of the 21st Century including widening income inequality due to technological unemployment
  • The case for a universal basic income
Whether the UK can create the right infrastructure for the economy of today and tomorrow? Don't forget we've changed venue to:
