What does the future look like for energy, and for our jobs?

Ahead of the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, we look at two issues that will be at the heart of many discussions: energy and jobs.

We discuss a new report, Securing the Energy Transition, with David Rabley who leads the energy transition practice for oil and gas at Accenture, and Roberto Bocca, Head of Energy, Materials and Infrastructure at the World Economic Forum.

And in the second half, Saadia Zahidi, head of the World Economic Forum’s Centre for the New Economy and Society, talks about the Jobs of Tomorrow - another new report, that looks at the rapidly changing world of work, with a focus on the green jobs and the care economy.
