2025: When women left the workforce

In partnership with Ouishare

An immersive experience with a mix of role playing and design fiction. Both speakers and participants enter an alternative reality to debate how to solve the crisis which faces us.

After the implementation of universal basic income and similar initiatives,  there has been a steady decline in the number of childcare workers, nurses, elementary teachers, cleaners, factory workers, receptionists, clerks assistants, and other roles that were conventionally dominated mostly by women. In an effort to address this crisis, the government is calling for proposals.

Some claim that the fact that women have left these jobs is a positive development because they have been able to spend more time with their families, start their own businesses or succeed in other fields.

Others claim that this crisis is negatively impacting women, and is a result of undervaluing those jobs for years. They argue that the solution is not only to improve the salaries and working conditions, but to encourage men to join these sectors.
