The World Day Against Child Labour is an international observance aimed at raising awareness and fostering the global movement against child labour to ensure a bright future for all children. It is organised annually by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and observed in various countries around the world. The day promotes education, safety and well-being of children, and opposes any form of work that hampers their development, be it mental or physical. The key aspects of the day include global campaigns, events, discussions and initiatives to engage and support individuals, organisations, and governments in their efforts to eliminate child labour.
The ILO launched the first World Day Against Child Labour on June 12, 2002, as part of the worldwide campaign against the worst forms of child labour. British businesses and companies rely on responsible global supply chains, where ethical practices are adhered to, ensuring that no child is exploited in the process. Hence, paying attention to this global observance is crucial for the people of the United Kingdom, both in terms of moral responsibility and in maintaining an ethical business environment.
In the United Kingdom, the World Day Against Child Labour is commemorated through various events, such as conferences, workshops, and seminars, organised by NGOs, educational institutions, and government bodies. These events encourage open dialogues on the issue and promote collaboration between local, national and international stakeholders in developing strategies and solutions to achieve a world without child labour. The day also serves as an opportunity for raising awareness among the British public regarding ethical consumer choices and the negative impacts of child labour on global society. Following the global precedent, the observance takes place every year on June 12th.
