The United Nations and One World invite you to ‘The Gig is Up’

When: Tuesday 21 April, 19:00 | Where: Cinéma Galeries, Brussels

The Gig is Up film posterA very human tech doc, THE GIG IS UP uncovers the real costs of the platform economy through the lives of people working for companies around the world, including Uber, Amazon and Deliveroo. From delivering food and driving ride shares to tagging images for AI, millions of people around the world are finding work task by task online. The gig economy is worth over 5 trillion USD globally, and growing. And yet the stories of the workers behind this tech revolution have gone largely neglected. Who are the people in this shadow workforce? THE GIG IS UP brings their stories into the light.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with:

  • Anna Banczyk, Deputy Head of Unit Future of Work, Youth Employment at the European Commission
  • Tom Peeters, Deputy Federal Secretary Road Transport and Logistics, ABVV/FGTB
  • Lieve Verboven, Director of the International Labour Organization’s Brussels Office
  • Moderated by Sherri Aldis, Director of UNRIC Brussels
