Getting Ready for the Future of Work in a Changing World
ICMC coordinates the project “The Future of Work, Labour After ‘Laudato Sì’.” Inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical, the project provides Catholic and other faith-based organizations with tools to respond to changes in the labor market. Its focus is on ensuring the dignity of workers, especially migrant workers. The project is a joint initiative of ICMC, the International Labour Organization and the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development.
