Labour Day – 1 May

Labour Day is a celebration of the international labour movement that takes place all over the world. It is traditionally used to make social and labour demands in favour of the working class.

30-04-2019    World International Day

According to Objective 8 of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) of the United Nations, it is essential to promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.

Roughly half the world’s population still lives on the equivalent of about US$2 a day. This slow and uneven progress requires us to rethink and retool our economic and social policies aimed at eradicating poverty.

Even though the average annual growth rate of real GDP per capita worldwide is increasing year on year, there are still many countries in the developing world that are decelerating in their growth rates.  As labor productivity decreases and unemployment rates rise, standards of living begin to decline due to lower wages. The creation of quality employment remains a challenge.

Sustainable economic growth will require societies to create the conditions that allow people to have quality jobs that stimulate the economy while not harming the environment. Training in technical and professional skills for young people and adults becomes necessary to facilitate acces to work and entrepreneurship, and decent working conditions. Many educating cities work to achieve sustainable and inclusive economic growth.
