World Day Against Child Labour is observed on 12 June each year.
In 2016 the theme is:
“End child labour in supply chains – It’s everyone’s business!”
Since globalisation, supply chains have become longer and increasingly complex as they span sectors, countries and regions.
CourtHeath’s Eleanor Doig recorded the video in Geneva for World Day Against Child Labour 2016.

A participant in the UN Global Compact, CourtHeath seeks to raise awareness about the sustainable development goals and the principles of the Global Compact with business and government organisations in Victoria. The effective abolition of child labour is one of the ten principles of the Global Compact. The Global Compact repudiates child labour internationally.
