8th European Social Week, preliminary seminar

In preparation of the 8th European Social Week we would like to explore the themes we want to put on the menu. A preliminary seminar with the title “Green Economy and Changes in Labour | Green Economy und Wandel der Arbeit” has been planned and postponed due to the covid-19 pandemic. Presently, it looks like we have reached the end of the lock-downs and social restrictions in most of Europe. Much is still unclear and uncertain, but we are expecting to be able to organize a seminar in the fall of 2021 in some form. We’ll keep you posted.
