Welcome - Add your voice to the global discussion.

In this room we will reflect on how education policies can contribute to the prevention and elimination of child labour and its worst forms. How do we facilitate access to education and ensure that children and adolescents stay in school? What are the challenges to overcome to make school more attractive than the world of work? How do we improve the transition from school into the workforce?
Basic education is a crucial component of any effective effort to eliminate child labour. Studies indicate that child labour is associated with lower rates of school enrollment, higher dropout rates, and lower academic performance.
We want to discuss which strategies can be adopted to ensure universal access to education and address certain economic and cultural factors that have a negative impact on the access and permanence of children and adolescents in the formal education system.
