Our Changing World: Demographic change meets the changing demand for labour in Aotearoa

This lecture explores factors shaping the future of work in this country and the challenges associated with these momentous changes.

Former Chief Science Adviser to the Prime Minister, Sir Peter Gluckman, says that "technological change across virtually every aspect of human endeavour generates an enormous array of possible implications. Simultaneously, our society is being shaped by population ageing, immigration, the economic centrality of Auckland, and the growing dynamism of a younger Māori cohort."

Together, those two phenomena – the 4th Industrial Revolution and demographic change – will have profound implications for the nature of work. 

This lecture is brought to you by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Massey University, Wellington.
