Global online launch of PSI’s three-year project on digitalisation Our Digital Future to be held on May 11, at 15:00 - 16:30 (CEST) (Check your local time here). Interpretation will be available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic and Russian.
Our Digital Future is a partnership with FES and EPSU to ensure public service unions and workers understand the challenges digitalisation poses to workers, unions and public services and are empowered to influence them. You can find out more about Our Digital Future here.
We are all aware of the rapid rise in power of digital corporations, how they increasingly influence our lives and workplaces, the use of data-driven algorithms in decision-making and the threats and challenges they pose to public services. It is essential that we are prepared to meet these challenges.
