Just Transitions in Australia:  The Future of Technology and Work

Australia is confronting three dramatic transformations: a technology transformation towards digital, automated and connected t systems; a looming transition to a decarbonised way of life or ‘net zero’; and a changing form of work and labour in many key industries including energy, mining and agriculture.

Can these processes work in tandem? Where are they in tension? and how will they impact the labour market and training for Australians? What would Just Transitions look like in this context?

This research project is supported/funded by the British Academy’s Just Transition to Decarbonisation in the Asia-Pacific Programme
