ILO - 90 years working for social justice
The International Labour Organization will celebrate its 90th anniversary from 21 to 28 April 2009.
The ILO has set the standards that have become a benchmark for so many dimensions of work. It has played a major role in economic and social policy development by putting standards into practice through its technical cooperation programmes and developing knowledge of the world of work.
The Centre adds value to the ILO. It is a global platform for sharing knowledge and experience of labour policy, employment and social development.
Since 1965, more that 170,000 participants, from 190 countries, have taken part in the Centre’s training activities, whether in Turin, in their own countries or at a distance.
The ILO and the Centre will continue to be in tune with the times, respond to new challenges and seize new opportunities, while remaining true to ILO values.
As the ILO celebrates its 90th anniversary, plans are already under way for the 100th. The ILO’s Century Project aims to ensure that the ILO reaches its centenary with as full an understanding as possible of the success it has achieved to date and the conditions for that success, together with the challenges and difficulties it has overcome and those it will face in the future.
