Facilitating the opportunities for an integrated and constructive discussion on the role of job creating in sustainable development, the theme for the 2015 Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Integration segment is focused on, “Achieving sustainable development through employment creation and decent work for all. The three day session, from March 30 to April 1, provides an opportunity for Member States, civil society, trade unions, the private sector, academia and other key actors to discuss and elaborate upon how employment creation and decent work for all could help promote the balanced integration of the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. The conference stages round table sessions, where representatives from diverse sectors are asked to focus on ways to promote policy convergence based on country experiences, good practices and lessons learned.
Focusing on “achieving sustainable development through employment creation and decent work for all” the second Integration Segment of the Economic and Social Council will demonstrate how the creation of good quality jobs could be a tool for promoting the economic, social and environmental aspects of sustainable development.
