AGENDA ITEM : The Sustainability of the "4-day working week"

The concept of a "4-day working week" has gained significant attention in recent years as a potential solution to improve work-life balance, boost productivity, and promote sustainability. The idea revolves around reducing the traditional 5-day workweek to 4 days, while maintaining the same level of productivity and ensuring employee well-being.

However, it's important to consider the potential challenges and implications of implementing a 4-day working week. Employers may need to adapt their operations and workflows to ensure productivity is maintained. Additionally, there might be concerns regarding potential impacts on wages, job security, and the overall economy.

In this UNECE Committee, it's essential to discuss the potential benefits and challenges of a 4-day working week, as well as explore strategies to promote its sustainability. You can delve into topics such as flexible work arrangements, employee rights, and the role of technology in supporting this transition.
