The ILO’s activities are aimed at empowering women and men to obtain decent and productive employment in conditions of freedom and justice, social guarantees and respect for human dignity. The main objective of the organization is to promote the protection of labour rights, the expansion of decent employment opportunities, the strengthening of social security and the development of dialogue on issues related to the world of work.
  Events that will take place around the world on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the ILO will contribute to the formation of a positive and dynamic image of the ILO in the eyes of all its members, as well as the rest of the world.
