Transition to formal economy - A Global Knowledge Sharing Forum

25 November 2019,   to   29 November 2019
Turin, Italy

The Global Knowledge Sharing Forum is organised every two years by the ILO and is a platform for open and interactive discussion between public decision-makers, social partners and institutional partners on what has worked or not on the transition processes at national, regional and global levels; as well as to identify key issues and challenges relating to enhancing the operationalization of the ILO’s recommendation on transition to formality (R204).

Six areas of research are suggested: • Transition to formality and inclusive structural transformation: the role of sectoral policies • Increased productivity of enterprises and workers they employed: what measures, conditions and what results? • Policy formulation and coordination for transition to formality: What works? • Informal economy actors’ practices and institutions: Challenges and opportunities for public policies • Skills development and lifelong learning: What now for informal economy workers? • Extending social security coverage to those in the informal economy: Paths and experiences • Organization and representation of informal economy workers and economic units: Innovative actions and tools

2019 International Conference on Learning Cities

1 October 2019,   to   3 October 2019
Medellín, Colombia

This year’s International Conference on Learning Cities (ICLC) will take place from 1 to 3 October in Medellín, Colombia, where government officials, city representatives and education experts from around the world will meet to identify, exchange and discuss effective lifelong learning policies and practices that lead to inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities.

Learning cities offer people of all ages and from all educational backgrounds an opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and ideas using formal, non-formal and informal delivery mechanisms, and multiple and flexible learning pathways, entry points and re-entry points. They play a significant role in promoting social inclusion, economic growth, public safety and environmental protection. Additionally, they revitalize learning in families, communities and the workplace.

Thus, learning cities are guided by the principle of inclusion: local governments have the power to engage diverse communities and social actors in the development of policies and strategies that lead to lifelong opportunities for everyone. The 2017 ICLC in Cork, Ireland, closed with the adoption of Learning cities and the SDGs: A guide to action, which presented concrete approaches to the development of green and healthy learning cities, equitable and inclusive learning cities, and decent work and entrepreneurship in learning cities, topics that are integral to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This year’s conference will look at inclusion and its importance for lifelong learning and sustainability.

This year’s host city, Medellín, boasts attractive landscapes, pleasant temperatures and a commitment to education and lifelong learning with initiatives such as the 'El Buen Comienzo Programa' and school graffiti. The event promises to set another milestone in ensuring lifelong learning for all and promoting the UN Sustainable Development Goals at local level.

Sectoral approaches to skills development

23 September 2019,   to   27 September 2019
Turin, Italy

The International Training Centre of the ILO (ITC/ILO) together with the European Training Foundation (ETF) is organizing a course on ‘Sectorial approaches to skills development’, a highly participatory training to learn about:

- The drivers of change that impact the skills supply and demand at a sectoral level;
- Methodologies, mechanisms, and modalities needed to identify labour market imbalances;
- How to recognize which skills will be needed in the future, and act through a macroeconomic policy framework.

The training will rely on a variety of innovative learning methodologies and group presentations, allowing for knowledge-sharing and reflection. Participants will be encouraged to bring interesting or relevant documents, such as country-specific skills anticipation methodologies.

The deadline to apply is 16 August.
