ILO 100th Anniversary: Where will the jobs of the future come from?

This year (2019), the International Labour Organisation (ILO) celebrates its 100 years of existence.  

To highlight the work of the oldest UN Agency whose purpose is to achieve social justice for all and everywhere, the ILO has created a devoted ILO100 website including nine thematic chapters: social dialogue, rights, equality, employment, social protection, work and governance, sustainable enterprises, working conditions and the future of work.

The last chapter has been recently released and deals with crucial questions such as: Where will the jobs of the future come from, what skills will be needed, and how can we ensure that all working conditions are decent?

SOLIDAR considers the role of the ILO crucial, today more than ever, to ensure our development model serves the people, ensure that no-one is left behind and ensure the respect of planetary boundaries in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

For this reason, SOLIDAR will be present at the forthcoming ILO Conference* (Geneva 10-21 June) and will work closely with its partners to promote Freedom of Association and to end violence at work.

*In the Framework of the SOLIDAR – DEVCO Partnership Agreement “Organising International SOLIDARity: Structuring local to global CSOs engagement on EU development cooperation issues”, SOLIDAR is active in Africa, Asia and Latin America to promote the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the full realisation of ESR, namely decent work and social protection for all.
