Social Justice: The African Youth Challenge
With half the population of Africa aged 19 or under, and a quarter of the world's people expected to be living on the continent by 2050, social justice cannot be achieved globally if it is not first realized for the youth in Africa. This World Day of Social Justice, ILO Africa brings together representatives from the international development community to hear from the youth on what they say they need to realize their dreams, and discover their solutions to Africa's social injustices.

How to meet the challenges of youth employment?
There are approximately 73 million unemployed youth globally. Even in the best of times, young people face a tough situation in the labour market. In this episode of the World of Work Show, we discuss how to meet the challenges of youth employment with Sara Elder, Head of Employment Analyses & Economic Policies Unit of the ILO. Also, Sukti Dasgupta, director of the Department on Conditions of Work and Equality (WORKQUALITY) talks about the recent ILO/Fundación ONCE report about how people with disabilities can seize job opportunities in the ecological transition. And Katie McQue, one of the winners of the 2022 ILO Global Media Competition on Labour Migration, explains how balanced and ethical reporting can contribute to address stereotypes and misconceptions about migrant workers.

The impact of climate change on child labour: Challenges and opportunities for action
Organized during the 14th annual meeting of the ILO Child Labour Platform, the conversation aims to foster understanding of the interlinkages between climate change and labour rights, particularly child labour, and to provide an overview of what the ILO is doing to address this challenge. Participants will be able to share knowledge and learn about good practices among existing due diligence initiatives on climate change and child labour in supply chains. The session also seeks to inspire collaborative action and provide participants with the opportunity to identify key partners and stakeholders such as trade unions, government officials, and local businesses and communities, with whom multinationals can collaborate.

The ILO at COP28
The COP28 venue in Dubai has experienced network issues, which have on occasion caused the streaming of the Just Transition Pavilion events to cut. If this happens while you are watching, we apologise for the inconvenience, and we will add the full recording of the event as soon as possible after it closes, so it can be watched on demand. The 28th session of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) will take place from 30 November to 12 December 2023 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. COP28 marks a critical moment of intensifying a triple planetary crisis, which is interlinked and cascading effects of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution. At this pivotal juncture, there is an ever-growing urgency for ambitious action and global cooperation in a tense international political context. Keeping the social dimension of climate change at the forefront of discussions is the focus of events being organized in the Just Transition Pavilion at the up-coming UN Climate Change Conference (COP28). For the second year in a row, the ILO and the European Commission are hosting the Just Transition Pavilion, a convening space for events, meetings and knowledge sharing around just transition and climate action in cooperation with the UNFCCC, International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and International Organisation of Employers (IOE).
