HomeNet International has once again been officially registered at the upcoming International Labour Conference, hosted by the International Labour Organization in Geneva from 5–16 June 2023. We will be sending a delegation of home-based worker leaders and representatives to actively participate in the event.

The conference will bring together worker, employer, and government delegates from the ILO’s 187 Member States, who will engage in productive discussions on a wide range of crucial topics. These include fostering a just transition towards sustainable and inclusive economies, promoting the importance of quality apprenticeships, and advancing measures for robust labor protection.
As part of our commitment to advocating for the rights and well-being of informal economy workers, HomeNet International, in collaboration with our sister organizations International Alliance of Waste Pickers, the International Domestic Workers Federation (IDWF), the Self-Employed Women Association of India (SEWA), StreetNet International, and WIEGO, aims to effectively convey the demands and aspirations of informal economy workers worldwide. By doing so, we strive to create a world where decent work is a reality for all individuals, ensuring that the informal economy becomes a space of fairness and dignity.
