ILO Global Dialogue Forum on decent work in the management of electrical and electronic waste (e-waste)

Employer experts are invited to return the candidature form before Wednesday 6 February.

From 9-11 April, the ILO will hold a Global Dialogue Forum on decent work in the management of electrical and electronic waste (e-waste). The purpose of the Global Dialogue Forum is to discuss current and emerging issues related to the promotion of decent work in the management of electrical and electronic waste (e-waste) sector, with the aim of adopting points of consensus, including recommendations for future action by the International Labour Organization and its Members

Eight Employer experts, eight Government experts and eight Worker experts will be invited to participate in the elaboration of these recommendations, and their travel and subsistence expenses will be covered by the ILO. We invite you to submit the candidature of an Employer expert well-versed in these matters and to return the duly completed candidature form to us before Wednesday 6 February. (Please download via the link under the "Resources" section.) The selection of participants will be based on the qualifications of the candidates, but also on a fair geographical balance that reflects the IOE's global membership. This Forum is also open to Observers who may attend at their cost.

We would also like to underline that in addition to bringing their technical expertise to the debate, the selected Employer delegates will have the opportunity – unique in some cases – to familiarise themselves with the ILO, its working methods and the respective policy positions of employers, workers and governments from around the world. 

We look forward to receiving the details of your designated candidate. 

Yours sincerely,

Matias Espinosa
Adviser
