Subject: [URPE] Invitation to the Global Forum on Democratizing Work, Oct 5-7, 2021

Dear Colleagues,
Please join us at the first Global Forum on Democratizing Work, October 5-7, 2021, so-organized by the Open Society University Network (OSUN) Economic Democracy Initiative (EDI) at Bard College. The Global Forum builds on the momentum generated by last year's Democratizing Work manifesto, which was published in more than 43 newspapers, in 27 languages, and in 36 countries around the world.

This year, the online Global Forum brings together over 380 speakers and 100 panels in 9 languages from all continents (except Antarctica) in a one-of-a-kind conversation. Each day focuses on one of the manifesto's three principles: democratizing the workplace, decommodifying work and securing the right to decent employment, and decarbonizing the planet and tackling climate change.

Featuring voices from academia, trade unions, progressive members of the business community, public sector representatives, environmental activists, human rights organizations, and journalists, the Global Forum is a worldwide event transcending conventional academic conferences.

The event is free and open to the public. Please share it with your students and register here:
