Homo Digitalis

Appetiser from SCENARIO 04:2013 by Morten Grønborg

Digital Man resembles mankind as it has always looked – full of opinions and contradictions, possibilities and limitations. The digital age is simply the framework we are situated in, and this gives us new opportunities.

In this issue of SCENARIO you will meet Natasha Friis Saxberg, who incarnates the digital human being – homo digitalis – which she has just written a book about, and who even has roots back to the Middle East, which in recent years has evolved dramatically as a result of the opportunities the digital media provide for free communication.

The Great Mismatch - lack of jobs, lack of talent

The Great Mismatch Members' report 3/2013 will be released August 2013

The coming Members' Report from the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies focus on The Great Mismatch on the job market: the paradox in the lack of jobs and the lack of talent.

High youth employment and an increasing mismatch in supply and demand of skills are a great challenge that especially European countries face today.

In the report, we aim to clarify what the already heavily media covered mismatch issue is really about and the reasons behind it. We also provide a number of cases and recommendations for how companies, workers, society, and educational institutions can work individually or together to help solve the issue. Finally, we look at how the mismatch may develop in the future and the consequences it will bring.
