Is it time for the 4 Day work week?

You are cordially invited to the report launch on the results of Ireland’s first four-day week trial. The event takes place on Wednesday, 30th November, at 11:30 am in the Dublin Chamber of Commerce.

Professor Juliet Schor of Boston College will provide an overview of the results of the international reduced worktime trials that have occurred internationally throughout 2022.

UCD’s Dr Orla Kelly will present the Irish 4-Day Week Trial results. We’ll also hear from several pilot participants about their experience with the trial on the day. And finally, the campaign leaders will highlight the next steps for the movement nationally and globally.

If you’d like to attend in person, we kindly ask you to RSVP via this link by Friday, 25th November, as places are limited.

Please register for the webinar here to join the event virtually.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 30th to mark this important advancement in the changing world of work.
