In their 2017 report “The New Work Smarts’, the “Foundation for Young Australians” declared;

“By 2030, Automation, globalisation and flexibility will change what we do in every job”

To adapt to this change, young people will need;

Smart Learning!         Smart thinking!       Smart doing!

The Vernier Foundation’s 2018 Youth Forum will explore what this means to the high school students of today, the educational institutions and our leading manufacturing companies through our expert panel:

  • Shona McPherson – Media Manager – Foundation for Young Australians
  • Professor Mark Easton – Associate Dean – RMIT University
  • Dr Karen O’Reilly Briggs – Researcher – Latrobe University
  • Dr Steve Dowey – Technology Manager – Sutton Tools

Questions to be addressed:

  • How the nature of work will change and how to be “Smarter”
  • What are the new skills and capabilities, along with STEM to secure the progressive jobs of tomorrow
  • How the educational institutions are adapting to this changing paradigm

Ask your own questions in our interactive Question and Answer panel session!  Make a comment!
