2020 World Day Against Child Labour

As we mark another World Day Against Child Labour on June 12, 2020 we are living in a very different world to last year. COVID-19 has rocked our economies, our industries, our health & education systems and ultimately our lives.

For many of the millions of workers contributing to global supply chains, the impact of COVID-19 has been particularly hard: it has compromised their ability to support their families, to put nutritious food on the table and to keep their children’s education on track. 

This situation is directly linked to greater child labour risks. This information package aims to highlight why it is in companies’ and their suppliers’ interest to strengthen child labour response systems. In it, you will find information on the following:

  • Data on current trends related to child labour

  • Why the COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated child labour risks

  • What companies can do to mitigate child labour risks

  • Stories from The Centre's child labour remediation cases

  • Links to a video and podcast about child labour

  • How The Centre can support you

Let’s work together to eradicate child labour and support a world in which children can thrive!
