This month’s cover package on the future of work looks at global trends post-pandemic and how they might apply to the Pacific. We hear from the founders of Greenhouse Coworking and consultants such as Mere Tuivuniwai about how they have built communities and contacts locally and globally. We also look at labour mobility programs and how they are responding to claims of abuse and exploitation. We interview Pacific Islands Forum Secretary General Henry Puna who talks about the Forum’s key priorities and his own position, profile aspiring Papua New Guinea parliamentarian Tania Bale, and look at barriers to women like Tania entering politics. There’s also coverage from the opening of the Blackrock Peacekeeping and Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief Camp, we learn how the Pacific is going backwards on water and sanitation, reflect on traditional resilience in the face of Tonga’s challenges, and we meet Papua New Guinea’s soulful Chris Cobb. Plus there is all our usual features; Whispers, Briefs and Movers and Shakers.
