On Monday, the 27th of March, don't miss the debate which will take place at BOZAR at 7PM on the question :

With the emergence of the digital economy, the third industrial revolution is underway. The Bruegel Institute in Brussels has estimated that within 20 years 54% of European jobs will be affected by robotisation. This is already the case in transport and agriculture, but also in finance, medicine, catering and even journalism and the medico-social sector.


Work is becoming a rare resource that will have to be shared, but how? How can the coexistence of humans and robots be ensured? Should robots be taxed? How will the economy function if consumption shrinks ?


The changes are already perceptible, modifying the relationship each one maintains with work, its organization or its remuneration.


Come to listen and share your convictions with our prestigious guests :

  • Marie-Hélène Ska, General Secretary at CSC.
  • Marc Goblet, General Secretary at FGTB.
  • Gérard Valenduc, Associate Researcher to the ETUI (European Trade Union Institute), professor in Social Sciences (UNamur and UCL), specialist in new technologies and their impact on employment.
  • Mady Delvaux, Member of the European Parliament for the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats, author of a highlighted report on the robotization of work.
  • Alain Gérard, Moderator.

The conference will be followed by the screening of the film Mattress Men from the Workers Competition at 9pm.
