This is an historic first! For one working day, the ILO invites you, in collaboration with the Fondation pour Genève, to discover its 100 years of action on the ground but also to dialogue together on the future of the world of work.
Geneva, host city of international institutions, will in turn be welcomed at the first ILO open day during which you will be able to access the headquarters of the oldest specialized agency of the UN.
Through various fun and interactive activities, visitors will be able to discover the past, present and future of the world of work – from the founding of the ILO in 1919 to major historical events, Conventions and programmes that shape everyone’s lives.
Today, work is increasingly digital, and the Open Day will include encounters with a robot, an experience of virtual reality and an invitation to share your own vision of the future of work.
