With a climate emergency to respond to while new technology pushes at boundaries and disrupts our lives, many jobs in Scotland will change or disappear completely. New jobs will also emerge. How can we ensure these jobs support the future of our planet?

Bringing together leaders from the public and private sectors, this event will explore how innovation and sustainability will shape how we work in the future.
