ILO to convene landmark event on “The Future of Work We Want” on April 6-7

Media advisory | 29 March 2017
GENEVA (ILO News) – As previously announced, the headquarters of the International Labour Organization (ILO) in Geneva will host a major event on the future of work on April 6-7.

The Future of Work We Want: A Global Dialogue will bring together leading economists, academics and actors of the world of work to discuss the profound transformations that will shape the future workplace (click on the links of the webpage to access the full programme and the list of speakers).

This event is open to journalists accredited with the UN in Geneva and there is no need for them to register on the Symposium’s website. However, because of additional security at the ILO headquarters and to facilitate your access, we strongly recommend that you let the ILO press office know that you are planning to come. Access to the event will be exceptionally given on R2 South, Door 4 (not North as usual). You will receive your badge at this place.

Journalists who are not accredited with the United Nations in Geneva should register here.

All six sessions of the event will be webcast on the ILO’s website as well as on its Facebook page. Journalists who watch the event online will have the opportunity to ask the panelists questions via Facebook or Twitter by using the hashtag #ILOFOW.

A press breakfast with ILO Director-General Guy Ryder (specifically on issues related to the future of work) for journalists from all over the world attending the Symposium will be held on Friday, 7 April at 8:00am at the ILO Headquarters. UNOG accredited correspondents are also welcome. However, for reasons already explained above, those who are interested in attending are kindly asked to let us know they plan to come.

For more information, please contact ILO Spokesperson Hans von Rohland.
