Stop Child Labour attends the ILO Global Child Labour Conference in The Hague with a large representation, including Southern partners, and manages to get the area-based approach and child labour free zones in the Outcome Document.
“Just prior to the 2010 ILO Global Child Labour Conference, we presented our findings about the correlation between child labour and decent work for adults based on input from trade unions and teachers’ unions from 10 countries. I remember we were sitting in this small conference room, writing and re-writing our lines for the Outcome Document. We had prepared this very well in advance, also in harmony with the Global March against Child Labour and other NGOs. We were so proud that our message was included in the Outcome Document. For me this was a real lobby milestone for Stop Child Labour.”
