The SafeYouth@Work Dialogue on young worker OSH vulnerability will be a key highlight of the XXI World Congress programme. In a plenary session before 800 attendees, with no concurrent symposia, the SafeYouth@Work Dialogue will provide a platform for cross-generational exchange and collaboration among OSH experts, policymakers, employer and worker representatives and young professionals on the subject of “OSH for Youth”. The Dialogue therefore represents both an opportunity and a challenge to all participants to develop a framework for youth to take on significant roles as change agents and enablers of sustainable development. Through the Dialogue and other youth-centred interventions at the Congress, the ILO aims to foster youth leadership on OSH issues, and promote their active engagement to improve OSH conditions for young workers.
The SafeYouth@Work Dialogue will take place at the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work on Tuesday, 5 September 2017 from 1.30pm to 3.30pm in the Melati Room of the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore.
