World Day Against Child Labour 2010
Go for the Goal: End child labour
5 May 2010
The World Day against Child Labour, marked on 12 June 2010, coincides with the World Cup in South Africa. It follows a major Global Conference on Child Labour in the Netherlands that will galvanise global support to end child labour. Coordinated by ILO’s International Programme for the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC), the World Day is calling for a scale up of the worldwide movement to tackle child labour.
ECLT supports IPEC’s call for:
- Renewed urgency to tackle the worst forms of child labour;
- Scaling up global, national and local level efforts by making action against all forms of child labour an integral part of poverty reduction, social protection and education planning strategies;
- Building political and popular commitment to tackling child labour, with social partners and civil society playing a leading role in advocacy and awareness raising efforts.
