ILO Global Summit on COVID-19 & The World of Work

July 1, 2020 - July 9, 2020

The International Labour Office is organising a virtual Global Summit to address the impact of Covid-19 on the world of work. The Global Summit will provide a high-profile platform for the tripartite constituents to maintain connectivity with the ILO’s global tripartite constituency, address the economic and social impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in particular to draw on the Centenary Declaration for the Future of Work to contribute to building back better in the post-pandemic recovery.

A brief document is being prepared by the ILO Office to provide a framework for the discussions around the world of work impact of Covid-19, and the ILO’s vision of the post-pandemic recovery through the human-centred approach of the Centenary Declaration for the Future of Work.

IOE is preparing a highlights document for employers on the various topics and outlines of employers’ positions on the different items up for discussion.

Dates and structure

The Summit is organised in two parts: regional events (July 1-3) followed by three global events (July 7-9). All events are scheduled to allow remote participation from all time zones and will be broadcast live with interpretation in several languages.
