A new publication on “Towards Twin Transformations and Spaces – Convoluted Conversations on the Green and Digital Futures of Work” by the Finland Futures Research Center, hosting the Helsinki Node of the Millennium Project, is now available online.
The eBook by Sirkka Heinonen, Co-Chair of the Helsinki Node of The Millennium Project, Burgert Maree, Risto Sivonen, Saija Toivonen, Riku Viitamäki & Paula Pättikangas, is a continuation of compiling a report based on a certain number of interviews made. The first such publication, published as FFRC eBook 1/2023, concentrated on probing resilient urban futures.
This second interview publication is focused on green and digital futures of work and spaces. It is made in the spirit of transformative foresight. Futures of work has remained a permanent topic in futures studies ever since its beginnings in the late 1950s. Work has indeed gone through several changes and transitions, in terms of its organizing, industrial context, contents, competencies needed, etc., when we think of, for example, the rise of robotics, microelectronics and the advent of the Internet. Now the very concept, role and manifestations of work are in turmoil and transformation beyond precedence, mainly due to the developments of digitalization and AI, along with the pressure of global challenges, of which the climate change is number one.
Among the experts involved in the publication, you will find Rosa Alegria, Co-Chair of the Brazil Node of The Millennium Project, and Sirkka Heinonn, together with many others.
The activity is part of the T-Winning Spaces 2035 project, a new research project coordinated by Aalto University in cooperation with the University of Turku and with the collaboration of many experts from The Millennium Project. Jerome Glenn is member of the international Advisory Board of the project.
