A recent report by a network of Catholic-inspired institutions, titled “Care is Work, Work is Care”. They asks the questions: “What is the meaning of decent work in today’s world?” or “How can we achieve the goal of proving decent work to all in todays’ world?” or “Every worker in the world has a right to decent work: how can we ensure it is respected?” By examining global challenges connected to building a world that is both socially and environmentally just, the report identifies practices and processes that can help direct the future of work towards sustainable and inclusive outcomes.

In this webinar, panelists will discuss the role of innovation in building a future of work that responds to the call to care for our common home.
