Environmental (climate, pollution, biodiversity, etc.) and social (inequalities, burn-outs, corporate social responsibility, etc.) challenges are of critical importance, especially in the context of work, whether salaried or not. This symposium, the result of two years of collaborative research, will provide an opportunity to compare opinions, points of view, analyses and positions on the issue of decent work in the context of the ecological transition.

As part of the International Labour Organization’s centenary celebrations, and in union with our partners – representatives of associations, trade unions, social centres, NGOs and church movements from all continents – Ceras (Centre de recherche et d’action sociales) is highlighting the urgent need to transform the world of work, taking into account invisible workers, future generations and care of the planet. This symposium will address issues such as the link between social suffering and environmental destruction, the double punishment of workers exploited in polluted environments, new solidarity-based economies, corporate social and environmental responsibility and the emergence of robotic work.

The programme of the event (20-22 May 2019) is accessible here.
