Gobally, 160 million children aged 5 to 17 are in child labour. About half of them (79 million) perform hazardous work that places their health, safety, or moral development at risk.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. With the right policy approaches and practical responses, the end is in sight. Individuals, as well as regions, countries, and organizations, can make a difference for children.
This masterclass paves the way forward with simplified definitions, practical solutions, and concrete actions you can take to foster change. Hear from experts who attended the 5th Global Conference on the Elimination of Child Labour and how they are changing the story around child labour.
Learn about child labour definitions, the prevailing global context, and its impact on the agriculture sector. Understand the crucial roles played by international cooperation, social finance, and effective communication in putting an end to this pressing issue. Explore avenues for identifying key actions that individuals, groups, and organizations can take to advance the cause of eradicating child labour worldwide.
