The Case for a Four Day Week: Book Launch

Join NEF alongside an international line up of speakers for the launch of The Case for a Four Day Week

Watch our online call with: Anna Coote, Principal Fellow, NEF; Aidan Harper, Researcher, NEF; Alfie Stirling, Director of Research and Chief Economist, NEF; Rep. Rasheen Aldridge Jr, State Representative of the 78th District of St Louis, Missouri; Katja Kipping, Co-Chairperson, Die Linke; Grace Blakeley, Economist and Author; Ian Waddell, General Secretary, CSEU.

Shorter working time should be at the heart of our economic recovery from coronavirus — but how do we actually get there? What would a transition to shorter working time look like in practice? And what lessons can we draw from efforts to shorten working time around the world?

Join NEF alongside an international line-up of speakers to celebrate the book launch of The Case for a Four Day Week. In the book, NEF’s own Anna Coote, Aidan Harper and Alfie Stirling argue the social, environmental and economic benefits of reduced working time, and lay out a roadmap for transitioning to shorter working hours that safeguards earnings of the lowest paid, whilst keeping the economy flourishing.

If you value great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF today.
