PLATFORM ECONOMY EDITION

24 & 25 OCTOBER 2019

AMSTERDAM

TICKET SALE STARTING SOON!

RETHINKING THE FUTURE OF WORK

Reshaping Work is an initiative that sparks discussion around digital trends, promotes research and collective thinking by organizing a series of events on a global and regional level

The rise of the platform economy has introduced a convenient way to match those in need of services to those who can offer them, and all with a click of a button. The number of so-called ‘gig workers’ or ‘platform workers’ is rising. What will the future of work look like?

On the 24 & 25 October 2019, academics, policymakers, business leaders and platform workers will come together to experience the future of work and find ways to shape it. We will convene this group of people during a two-day conference held in Amsterdam. Participants will get the latest insights, not only from policymakers, academics, and business leaders but also from platform workers themselves.

When came across the event I could connect to it immediately. I knew, as a gig worker and an artist, that I wanted to be a part of the discussion, but nothing could have prepared me for how damn good the experience was.

Alina Lupu, Conceptual artist & Platform worker

We cannot understand the gig economy until we grapple with its competing narratives: Reshaping Work provided a unique opportunity to hear from and discuss with representatives of gig economy workers, academics, and platform operators. A great event!
