The New Economics Foundation, London, 11 January 2012
As the economic crisis deepens, this is the moment to consider moving towards much shorter, more flexible paid working hours – sharing out jobs and unpaid time more fairly across the population. nef would like to invite you to an event that takes forward the ideas from its highly acclaimed report 21 Hours to examine how this could help to address a range of urgent social, economic and environmental problems we face. On 11 January, a panel of leading experts in partnership with the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) at the London School of Economics will discuss this topic: Juliet Schor, Lord Robert Skidelsky and Tim Jackson.
Why a shorter working week can help us all to flourish in the 21st century
