Each year over 2,000 leaders and representatives from governments, businesses, community groups, civil society, UN bodies academia and the media gather to talk about how business and human rights are related. It is the world's largest meeting discussing how business can be a driver to promote human rights, roles of businesses to respect human rights and successful examples of how to take action against human rights violations.
This year, the ECLT Foundation is proud to support conversations which will include child labour in agricultural supply chains, including the first-ever participation from anyone under 18 in the Forum.
Olman Mendoza and Marta Lidia Lima from our EEMPATA project in Guatemala will share their experiences on access to education, child labour and decent work for young people in agricultural communities. Ms. Glenda Ochoa, Director of Social Welfare from the Ministry of Labour of Guatemala will also join and share about concrete models against child labour in Guatemala.
