World Day Against Child Labour History
The observance of World Day Against Child Labour aims to raise awareness and promote action against the harmful and oppressive exploitation of children in labour. This event was established by the International Labour Organization (ILO). World Day Against Child Labour tackles a global issue affecting millions of children who are forced into work, often in dangerous conditions, and denied access to education, healthcare, and a nurturing life. The observance seeks to highlight the importance of eradicating child labour in order to ensure the welfare and dignity of every child, and supports efforts to create policies and programs towards that goal.
Although child labour is less prevalent in New Zealand compared to other countries, the World Day Against Child Labour still holds significance in promoting child rights within the nation. Historically, the ILO has worked alongside the New Zealand government to prioritise improvements in employment standards, health and safety measures, and the regulation of the working age. As a member of the international community, New Zealand plays a role in raising awareness about child labour and advocating for its elimination in countries suffering from this issue.
During the observance of World Day Against Child Labour in New Zealand, activities may include awareness campaigns, educational workshops, panel discussions, and media events focusing on child labour and its consequences. Some organisations may use this day to collaborate with other countries and share knowledge in the fight against child labour. World Day Against Child Labour is observed annually on June 12th.
