Child solidarity event to mark the World Day Against Child Labour

School children from local schools will participate in a child solidarity event, along with civic leaders from the City and the Canton of Geneva, and other invited guests.

The child solidarity event in Place des Nations is organised by a local partner “Le Respect, ça change la vie” in collaboration with the ILO. For the fifth consecutive year, hundreds of school children will gather at Place des Nations alongside Swiss authorities and international organizations, to show their solidarity and demand an end to child labour. Children will sing the song “Libérez les Enfants” (Free the Children), they will address questions to the various authorities present and present their appeal calling for urgent action to end child labour. The event will end with a release of balloons.
