To commemorate the International Year for the Elimination of Child Labour, UN Global Compact Network UK & UN Global Compact Network USA are launching the Elimination of Child Labour Webinar Series. The five sessions feature a series of discussions over the course of the year, to raise awareness on the importance of the elimination of child labour and to translate business aspirations into business actions. The series will bring private sector representatives together with UN agencies, academia, and civil society to discuss the challenges on the ground, as well as share best practice examples to eliminate child labour and accelerate progress to end child labour for good.
