The 4th Industrial Revolution: Opportunities for Green Transformation in the World of Employment

As part of our ongoing transnational project on questions around green transformation and a post-growth society, we are hosting a workshop in Budapest to discuss new technologies and other ‘change-makers’, such as climate disruption, and how they contribute to an ongoing social-ecological transformation and the 4th industrial revolution fueled by disruptive technologies such as digitalisation or robotisation.
