Nowadays, our society is subject to permanent change.


Consequently, it becomes evident that the future will bring great changes in the labour market related to industry 4.0.

Over the years, new technologies, population aging in occidental societies and climate change have assumed a very important role in the development of changes in labour relations. As a result, it becomes of the utmost importance to rethink work in a sustainable manner in order to reach and set targets for 2030.

These targets are fundamental as we are responsible for anticipating new challenges and making sure that the Law is able to cope with and provide answers for all of the forthcoming changes.
