Specifically, the conference aims to provide youth officers/members and advocates with global and national perspectives on Decent Work; review the implementation of the Philippine Decent Work Common Agenda; identify trade union actions to accelerate achievement of Decent Work vis-à-vis Medium Development Goals 1B: Achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all, including women and young people, including monitoring and research tools; and design actions plans to operationalize unions' contributions in realizing the goals of decent work.

Some 25 youth officers/members and youth advocates from TUCP's affiliates and partners throughout the country are expected to attend this activity. (PIA-Surigao del Norte)
