Ideas and prototypes at IFTF’s Positive Platform Design Jam

Why Workable Futures?

How do we create the level of stability created over the last century for workers while maintaining the flexibility that we know people want?

Natalie Foster, Peers Co-founder

Today we have a choice. We can be thrown into the new world of work as castaways, naked, dazed and ill-equipped to cope with the new hostile landscape. Or we can arrive as enlightened immigrants, open to the new opportunities and ready to learn the new culture.

Marina Gorbis, IFTF Executive Director
