Humanothon is a human, world, change-aware ‘marathon’ – a thematic movement – for sense making and building shared understanding. 

Nicky Dries leads on the theme of Future of Work

What do we say to our children so that they can make great decisions for their lives and careers? What is changing and how? What impact might those changes have, where? What about the global picture, what varies? What are some great examples of innovative thinking around the world of work? What might be the root causes of the changes? Did we get those right or did convenience and supposed market wishes take us in the wrong direction, too far, without deep enough understanding? And what have been the unintended consequences so far? What’s next?

We are building an exciting SparkMap titled “Future of work – what’s next” which deliberates on the world of work and brings together – connecting the dots – the various perspectives surrounding the world of work, the changes and impact, what is changing now, what are examples from around the world, what innovations, what possibilities for improvements, how are humans around the world experiencing the ideas of gig economy, zero hour contracts…

Join us to contribute your knowledge and experiences to this discussion. We are eager to have your thoughts on future of work – what’s next: why this is so important, what impact it could have, the history of it to understand its evolution and more as part of our shared multidisciplinary understanding.

About Nicky Dries

Nicky Dries is Professor of Organizational Behavior at KU Leuven (department of Work & Organisation Studies) and at BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo (department of Leadership & Organizational Behaviour). In Leuven, she runs the Future of Work Lab within the Faculty of Economics, that studies social imaginaries for the future. Nicky is an industrial/organizational psychologist by training; attached to the Future of Work lab she collaborates with a business economist (Philip Rogiers), a historian (Joost Luyckx), and a cultural studies major (Max Bogaert). Their research builds on methods aimed at triggering people’s imagination about the future, using media analysis, robotic art and design, virtual reality, and science-fiction movies. The mission of the Lab is to re-politicize the future of work, and stimulate democratic debate.

About Hunome

Hunome is a new Social Network and a Collective Sensemaking online product – uniquely designed to build shared understanding. A SparkMap is a non-linear, evolving and multi-dimensional map of understanding on a theme. SparkMap is a great way to visualize the understanding that a group of people have on a particular theme.

About Humanothon

Humanothon is a movement or a set of thematic movements run on the Hunome product. You can take leadership on a theme that needs multidimensional understanding and that you want to build a concerted systematic mapping on, with a group. Hunome product is there to use and our team helps the leads set this up providing materials and other help.

You do not need to run a Humanothon to build multidimensional understanding on Hunome. You can also just start by clicking on ‘New SparkMap’ once inside Hunome and craft your own understanding and see others join.
