One Big Step Towards A Global Network Of Home-Based Workers

One Big Step Towards A Global Network Of Home-Based Workers

07 Jun 2018

The 22nd May 2018 was a truly red letter day for home-based workers across the world. Representatives of the five regions of South East Asia, South Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe & Central Asia, and Latin America met at a Global Meeting in Stockholm on the 21st and 22nd May, convened by WIEGO.  After detailed stock taking and discussions, facilitated by WIEGO, it was unanimously decided to take concrete steps to set up a global network of home-based workers. They agreed to an extensive consultative process to ensure home-based workers and through their membership-based organizations fully participate in making decisions about the proposed network.  An interim international working group  with one representative from each region, has been set up to steer the process over a two year period, culminating in a global conference around mid 2020.
