WE-TRANSFORM project together with POLIS lead the Just Transition webinar on Governance & Integration: “What about the jobs?”
When: 7 March 2023 – 14:00 – 15:00 CET – Online
What about the Jobs?
Automation and digitalisation are challenging transport companies to revamp their services, and enabling new players to disrupt a highly regulated sector. These changes have several implications for the transport workforce. “Reskilling” isn’t a silver bullet. The challenges run deeper – change is also driven by the push for sustainable mobility, the change of mobility patterns caused by teleworking, and a volatile economic situation.
Mobility services cannot operate without workers, regardless of how automated they become. They also cannot change without the support and active input of workers, particularly if we want them to change in the right direction, and as fast as possible. Discussing a Just Transition in the mobility sector necessarily requires understanding the labour dimension. So, what about the jobs?
