Webinar : How Cooperatives Tackle Child Labour


On 9 June 2021, the International Cooperative Entrepreneurship Think Tank (ICETT) in collaboration with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) will organise a webinar with the theme “Ethical Value Chains: How Cooperatives Tackle Child Labour” to mark International Day on Elimination of Child Labour.

It aims to raise awareness of how cooperatives can help fight against child labour in their sphere of influence and value chains, sharing case studies and best practices and practical recommendations on how to enhance and accelerate the progress of elimination of child labour.

This event will discuss how cooperative improve the livelihoods of their members and people in the communities they serve to eliminate child labour, best strategies that cooperatives could engage in to enhance community mobilization and awareness-raising campaigns on elimination of child labour among their members and within the communities, explore practical tools that cooperatives and other organisations could adopt to enhance and accelerate the fight against child labour and how cooperatives would ensure that their members do not use child labour – directly or indirectly.

This webinar is part of a series of online events organised by ICETT that will be held on 1, 3, and 9 June 2021, as our journey towards the World Cooperative Congress.
