A process of scientific and technological globalisation has been underway for some time and has already substantially changed the conditions of labour markets around the world. The most reliable forecasts indicate that it will continue to do so for decades to come. The massive use of artificial intelligence and robotics will allow (or rather: force) machines to take over a large part of the tasks that are still performed by humans today. Since the purpose of all economic activity is to produce goods and services and to distribute them fairly and efficiently, the challenge is to urgently reorganise the systems for allocating the burdens of work and the remuneration that will be in place in the future. Until very recently, an individual's work profile defined to a large extent his or her ethical personality and civic identity. It is far from clear how socially and personally valuable biographical profiles can be achieved in a civilisation dominated by leisure. This discussion paper explores - without too many illusions that it can lead to a realistic programme of action - the capacity of a profoundly redesigned educational system to help overcome this uncertain transition, to enhance the positive virtualities of the current conjuncture and to minimise the negative ones.
