To prepare our children and those already in employment for the world of work in decades to come, we need to better understand what that future is going to look like, what skills, knowledge and attributes will be important for success.
Technological change in turn is just one of multiple global trends that will impact on employment. An ageing population, climate change, urbanisation and rising income inequality - each of these will have important sectoral implications.
This slidepack sets out the following seven major trends that will shape the future of the UK labour market and skills needs by 2030: technological change, globalisation, demographic change, environmental sustainability, urbanisation, increasing inequality, political uncertainty.
Nesta will publish a further report from the research project, exploring which skills, knowledge and attributes are going to be important to the UK and US workforces in 2030.
