This event serves as a platform for meaningful discussions, collaboration and proactive steps towards a brighter future.

The 'Emerging Futures' workshop is a knowledge exchange platform designed for academics, practitioners, policymakers, and youth to jointly explore opportunities/challenges facing young people in a rapidly changing world of work.

Our theme, ‘empowering youth in a changing world of work’, aims to generate ideas and provide valuable insights into the shifting dynamics of the job market, emphasising the importance of adaptability and continuous learning for the next generation.

The workshop will focus on three key areas relevant to youth: talent and human capital; diversity and inclusion; and careers as the fundamental building blocks for an emerging future.

The sessions will be focusing on a range of issues, including:

  • Skills gap
  • Talent
  • Education
  • Employability
  • Diversity
  • Social mobility

You will have the opportunity to extend share your research/ideas to help solve youth problems and show impact. The event will not only have an academic impact but also a broader effect on society.

Through a mix of lightning talks, panel discussions and breakout sessions, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the key trends shaping the future of work and future pathways for young people.
