ILO Centenary Declaration for the Future of Work, 2019
The ILO Centenary Declaration for the Future of Work, 2019 was adopted at the 108th International Labour Conference , which marked the 100th anniversary of the ILO.
It is a short but crucial statement that looks at the major challenges and opportunities for the future of work, ranging from technology to climate change, from demographic shifts to the need for new skills.
It provides guidance for dealing with these pressing issues and a platform for cooperation with other organizations in the international system. It is also a strong reaffirmation of the social justice mandate we were given 100 years ago, and the critical role of social dialogue and international labour standards.
In short, the Declaration acknowledges our successes, recognizes where we are now, and most importantly looks at where we need to go in the future.
