12 June: World Day Against Child Labour

The World Day Against Child Labour was observed globally on 12 June 2016 with the theme End child labour in supply chains - It's everyone's business!.

This year, the focus for World Day Against Child Labour is on child labour and supply chains. With 168 million children still in child labour, all supply chains, from agriculture to manufacturing, services to construction, run the risk that child labour may be present.

To support businesses in their actions to remove child labour from their supply chains, the ILO and the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) jointly created the Child Labour Guidance Tool, a resource for companies to increase their knowledge and ability to conduct business in line with international labour standards on child labour.

Background

• The International Labour Organization (ILO) launched the World Day Against Child Labour in 2002 to focus attention on the global extent of child labour and the action and efforts needed to eliminate it.
• Each year on 12 June, the Day brings together governments, employers and workers organizations, civil society to highlight the plight of child labourers and what can be done to help them.
