The inaugural Forum of the Global Coalition for Social Justice will take place on 13 June 2024, on the occasion of the 112th Session (2024) of the International Labour Conference. The Forum will take place in Building E of the Palais des Nations, Geneva.

The inaugural Forum will be open to all Coalition partners, to ILO constituents and to the tripartite delegations accredited to attend the Conference, as observers.

The agenda for the inaugural forum is structured as a seamless continuation of the collaborative efforts on the thematic development of the Coalition. It also follows the World of Work Summit held during the 111th Session of the International Labour Conference (June 2023), which was convened around the central theme of “Social Justice for All”, and where high-level dignitaries - Heads of State and Government, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, and high-level representatives of employers’ and workers’ organizations and principals of multilateral organizations - vigorously advocated for the cause of social justice and made the political case for greater social justice to better align the economic, environmental and social agendas.

The Forum will highlight the concrete collaborative actions in favour of social justice taken by the partners, aligned with the thematic areas defined for the Coalition.
