4 Day Week Global leaders discuss future of work

Andrew Barnes and Charlotte Lockhart feature on Episode 2 of Working on Wellbeing.

The five-day work week hasn’t changed since it was first brought to prominence by Henry Ford almost a century ago. But this set-up is increasingly at odds with our 21st Century lifestyles – and is having a real and measurable impact on our mental health and wellbeing.

In this second episode of the World Wellbeing Movements Working on Wellbeing podcast, host Sarah Cunningham speaks to two of the world’s leading voices calling for the introduction of a four-day week.

Andrew Barnes and Charlotte Lockhart, co-founders of WWM founding member 4 Day Week Global, share the story of how they formed the 4 Day Week Global community from small-scale beginnings in New Zealand, how the world’s attention was thrust on them as they raced across Siberia, and how the future of work needn’t be about working more: but about working better.
