What should businesses do, according to you, to address child labour? How can businesses prevent their products being manufactured by children?

The Dutch Government commits itself, together with (international) businesses to eliminate child labour. And we need your help to do that!

Take part in the  “Netherlands against child labour” challenge! We are looking for creative, innovative ideas to eliminate child labour worldwide.

At www.nederlandtegenkinderarbeid.nl you will find more information about the challenge as well as the conditions (in Dutch).

The best five ideas get the opportunity to pitch their idea for a range of Dutch enterprises during an event on 24 October 2017 (afternoon). The best three ideas win a nice cash amount and on top of that, the best idea will be taken along to the international conference on child labour in Argentina this coming November. 

Join us in our fight against child labour. We’re looking forward to your contributions!
