  THEME 2011 Whither work?

Work – certain change, less certain direction

The North is often said to lie in the margins where well-being is concerned: young adults are moving away, our province is becoming deserted, and companies and the public sector alike are cutting back on operations and services. But developments could be rather different if the region's untapped natural resources and tourist resorts succeed in attracting the actors in the global economy northwards.

The future is hard to predict but one thing is certain: change. Latitude 2011 explores the changes taking place in working life, because the kind of work that's done, who does it, and why are all essential to our well-being.
