Presidents of Brazil and Nepal to Participate in Inaugural Forum of Global Coalition for Social Justice

 June 8, 2024  

GENEVA – The Presidents of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, and Nepal, Ram Chandra Paudel, will participate in the Inaugural Forum of the Global Coalition for Social Justice on Thursday, June 13, during the International Labour Conference (ILC).

The Forum, taking place at the UN Palais des Nations, will feature a high-level segment, thematic working sessions, and an engagement zone. Participants will discuss a range of social justice issues, addressing challenges, opportunities, and potential solutions to advance the Coalition’s objectives. The event will also serve as a platform for Coalition partners to share knowledge, tools, and experiences, and to showcase activities and initiatives in support of social justice.

Launched in 2023, the Global Coalition for Social Justice has rapidly grown, now comprising over 250 members, including governments, workers’ and employers’ organizations, multilateral and national organizations, financial institutions, academic bodies, and international NGOs.

The ILC, the annual meeting of the 187 Member States of the International Labour Organization (ILO), is being held from June 3-14. The event brings together a wide array of stakeholders to discuss and formulate international labour standards and policies.

For UNOG-accredited correspondents, Palais-based journalists can cover the forum with their press credentials. Arrival details for high-level guests will be provided closer to the date. Due to limited space, access will be prioritized for broadcast journalists, while print journalists are invited to follow the forum from the ILC media center or via the ILO Live platform.

The forum’s agenda and live broadcast link can be accessed on ILO Live. This event promises to be a pivotal moment for the Coalition, highlighting the global commitment to social justice and providing a collaborative space for innovative solutions and initiatives.
