TIME USE WEEK 2022 – Time and (in-)equalities

The international meeting point on time policies

The Time Use Week is the main global event aimed at promoting the exchange of knowledge and good practices in time policies. It gathers researchers, public institutions, social partners, and citizenry from all over the world.

This ninth edition will take place from the 24th to the 26th October in Barcelona, with some events happening virtually also the 27th. This year’s topic is time and (in-)equalities.

During the Week, data on time use inequalities, their effects on people’s health, equality, and productivity, as well as on countries’ sustainability, or even on the workplace, will be shown. Social initiatives and public policies aimed at facing such inequalities will be analysed, and the question on how to grant the right to time as a citizenry right will be addressed.

This year’s Time Use Week is aimed at being even a more inclusive event, hosting international events and discussions, as well as decentralising some of them in order to reach every interested community.
