On 12 June, people around the world join hands to mark the World Day Against Child Labour – to raise awareness and contribute to ending child labour. World Scouting has been supporting the World Day Against Child Labour for several years now and many National Scout Organizations engage with their Scouts through activities and programmes on 12th June each year to raise awareness on this key issue. The theme of this year’s World Day is “Human Rights and Social Justice – let’s end child labour”.
WOSM’s long standing partner in educating children on their rights - the International Labour Organization’s (an United Nations Agency) International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour - has prepared educational activities for children and young people in collaboration with Education International (global organisation of teachers and education employees across the globe).
Volunteering is a key aspect in Scouting, not just the adult volunteers contributing to achieving the Scout Mission by supporting the education of children and youth in our Movement, but also all the young volunteers doing the countless good deeds as part of their daily Scouting activities. With over 7 million adult volunteers and millions of other young volunteers, Scouting is definitely one of the leading volunteer organisations in the world. For this reason and more, United Nations Volunteers (UNV), is one of the key partners of WOSM. The UNV programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. World Scouting is hence happy to support this excellent initiative by UNV – Volunteer Action Counts, to help make all volunteer actions (small and big) in the area of sustainable development count at Rio+20.
