The Jobs of the Future Initiative

What professions are needed to address the problems of the 21st century? What are currently the most important innovations and what are the trends for the future? What sort of professions and skills do new technical and social developments demand? What do we want the jobs of the future to look like?

To find out about that, the world lecture project – (wlp)°, the World Association of Young Scientists – WAYS, the International Consortium of Research Staff Associations – ICORSA, and GlobalNet21 will announce a contest throughout their partner-networks to identify jobs of the future. We will ask scientists and scholars to describe their vision of future jobs and what skills and professions will be needed to implement innovations and to solve future problems.

The evaluation and winning criteria of the contest will align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by UNESCO. Thus we will help implementing these goals into work life and we ensure, that the jobs that we promote are sustainable. 

With the announcement of the winners we will invite companies, institutions, and organisations to create think tanks around each job proposal, in order to establish infrastructures that integrate the jobs into the market. 

The competition will be a permanent event, as we permanently need to identify jobs of the future. It will not be restricted, but successively covering all areas of human activity.

You can register your idea directly by producing a short video describing your job vision and uploading it to the world lecture project website. But first contact us and we will provide you with more information:
