Sharing innovation to inspire action

Could Australians work a 4 day workweek?

Why not? The pandemic has forced into the open certain fallacies about the way work life is structured. Companies that previously required their employees to come into the office have now revealed how easy it is to let them work from home ― freeing them from extended commutes, often by car, in climate-harming rush-hour traffic.

New Zealand is exploring the possibilities, France has a 35 hour week. A small municipal government in Canada is trialing a 4 day work week for 9 months. What could you do?

Yes! The benefits of working from home have now been shown. It doesn't suit all but should be available when it does. Savings in travel time can be significant.
