International Women's Day: "Women in Sports"
In keeping with the ILO commitment to gender equality and the improvement of working conditions for women, the International Labour Organization (ILO) celebrates International Women's Day each year by hosting a round table discussion and a film festival highlighting the role and/or achievements of women in a particular field of work. In follow-up to the International Year of Sport and Physical Education (2005), the subject of the 2006 events is "Women in Sports".
Campaign on Social Security and Coverage for All
Only one in five people in the world has adequate social security coverage. The other four need it too, but somehow must manage without. Governments, employers' and workers' organizations considered that the highest priority should be given to "policies and initiatives that bring social security to those who are not covered by existing systems". At the International Labour Conference in June 2001, they asked the ILO to launch a Global Campaign on Social Security and Coverage for All.
Red Card to Child Labour
In several sporting disciplines, but especially in football, the red card sanctions faults which are liable to exclusion from the field. In 2002, the ILO and IPEC decided to use the symbol of the red card to raise awareness in preventing, challenging and eliminating child labour.
World day against child labour 2005
This year World Day Against Child Labour (WDACL) called our attention to a form of work that is dangerous to children in every way; child labour in quarrying and mining. It is physically dangerous because of the heavy and awkward loads, the strenuousness of the work, the unstable underground structures, the tools, the toxic chemicals, and the exposure to sun and water.
