Re-imagining work: Green paper, work 4.0

With the dialogue process Work 4.0, which will continue up until the end of 2016, the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has provided a framework for a dialogue, in part public and in part technical, about how society will work in the future. As a basis for the dialogue, Federal Minister Andrea Nahles presented the Green Paper 4.0 in Berlin on 22 April 2015. It outlines main trends, changes in values and important areas for action for the working society of the future. It contains a series of specific fundamental questions intended to initiate a broad dialogue. These questions will be addressed with the help of experts from research, social partners, associations and operational practice.
