The modern world of work is both an exciting and uncertain place for young people. Technological changes, the demand for ‘soft’ or ‘enterprising’ skills, and increasing casual and part-time work are changing the nature of employment markets.
There is a range of data available about the labour market and predictions about the future of work, but the voice of young people is often missing in contemporary research.
The Making our Future Work project, run by independent think tank Australia21, seeks to gain an empathic understanding of young people’s experiences and feelings about the world of work, their future, and the challenges and opportunities they face.
The first stage of the project was an ACT pilot workshop held on 11 September 2017.
