The Right to Time – perspectives for the 21st Century

In the 21st Century, economic, ecological, and social policies can only become sustainable when systemically enriched with time policies for better care opportunities for men and women; sustainable production, services and consumption, and temporal on working times which make it possible to adapt to future modalities of work. These fundamental requirements of the 21st century will only be achieved with comprehensive time policies – and a right to time as their legal catalyst. Hence, we propose the creation of a new human right, the right to time.

This is a policy brief debated and published during Time Use Week 2023, enriched with comments and contributions from all participating institutions and attendees. Read the conclusions from the session.
