Corona – Winter School cancelled or postponed
Unfortunately we have to cancel the conference for this winter. We steadily monitored the development and still estimate the health risks for the participants as relatively low as stated before.
Because of the Corona virus major parts of the program were cancelled at short notice what would have led to a reduced program we cannot do with a clear conscience.
We are very sorry for the inconveniences that occur and will provide further information as soon as we can estimate if we are able to postpone the Winter School (maybe to summer).

What is it about…
Our → team is organizing the conference entitled WORK in progress (→ programme). We are glad to invite you and share this experience with you. The conference will focus on how to make our world of work fairer and more sustainable.
It will arise the question about the justice of payments and security and also important topics such as the “demarcation of work from private life”. It will be created a framework in which we can think about alternative concepts of work. In preparation for this “looking into the future”, we will address both the issues of justice and sustainability in our world of work and we will analyze the various meanings of the concept of “work”.
Why you should join us
During the conference the participants will learn much new concepts and for sure will take with them new points of view and new useful concepts for their personal life and for sure for their future integration in the world of work. We want to make a really interactive conference. For this reason we decided to have a maximum of 30 participants, so you better be quick.
One big advantage of our conference is for sure also the geographical location. Witten is situated in the heart of the Ruhr area: A perfect starting point to explore the beauty of the Ruhr valley and its industrial heritage and it is a perfect example of the evolution of the World of Work.
