THE MAKING PLACES IN A JOBLESS SOCIETY

7b4f1e04-22be-4695-b70b-766330a141d7

Hi everyone! Are you guys all back to work? Did you get to enjoy some summer break? And especially did you enjoy our newsletters?
So since we are almost at the end of our second competition, we are going to send the last suggestions for your projects! This week we are looking forward, to the future, a good future? or a myth? we want to discuss the idea of factories in a jobless society! So let’s start working (a bit less maybe!)
First, let’s figure out if this jobless situation is real or not:

1. ARE WE HEADING TOWARDS A JOBLESS SOCIETY? Read me!
2. A JOBLESS SOCIETY IS THE FUTURE: Oh gosh…
3. OR IS IT? Check it out!
4. IS THERE STILL HOPE FOR WORKAHOLICS? Give it to me!
5. WHAT IF WE WORKED ONLY 15 HOURS A WEEK? Need some rest? 

Could this be the future of our making places? Could it be a solution? Or, as already said, is this just a myth and factories should work in a standard way like they’ve been doing for ages?
Then again, for our second round (and as we talked about robots already), are they going to be a big cause of this phenomena that might strike the factories future?

1. ROBOTS STEALING JOBS? Click, click
2. WHAT EXACTLY DO THEY DO FOR MANUFACTURING? Our frenemies are back!

Well, this is a good and interesting topic to work on, don’t you think? But in case it made you feel you a bit overwhelmed, we want to leave you with a different kind of inspiration, a visual one that might ease a bit this bittersweet pill: here is a list of movies that talk about unemployment and that might make you want to relax a while! (warning: they are not all related to the factories and the theme of the competition, it’s just a bonus element that you might enjoy)

With this said, goodbye once more you wonderful readers! We love you like always and we are excited to receive your projects! Remember: the deadline to submit is September 1st at 23.59 GMT+0.
Xx!
