Are you ready to submit your 2021 Action Pledge? The deadline is 15 May.
The following structure should guide your year:
Identify your 2021 Action Pledge and shift into motion
Share your journey through stories and experiences
Build upon your ideas with fellow change makers
Yes, it’s a voluntary commitment to act, inspire and scale up.
We expect stakeholders and individuals to take a meaningful and realistic action in 2021.
Yes, we encourage action at the individual level as well, though the individual is responsible for completing their pledge.
Yes, all companies can submit a pledge. If you are a member of the Child Labour Platform or Global Network on Forced Labour, please reach out to your focal point before submitting a 2021 Action Pledge so the relevant Secretariat can support you in identifying and then communicating about your pledge.
Each stakeholder should submit one pledge, however, they can still take action beyond what they pledge. The idea of making a single pledge is so that stakeholders can commit to completing it in 2021. Organizations with subsidiaries can submit 2021 Action Pledges that are separate, but, at the global level, organizations should select only one pledge that represents the most ambitious yet achievable contribution they can make and communicate about. For example, Save the Children International and Save the Children UK can each submit 2021 Action Pledges separately, although we encourage internal coordination and collaboration to prevent overlap.
If you want to change the name of your 2021 Action Pledge, or the party responsible for implementation, please contact us at email@example.com. No new submissions will be accepted after May 15th 2021.
We understand circumstances change, and this is a voluntary commitment. However, we encourage stakeholders to share their experiences, even if they are not successful.
Stakeholder 2021 Action Pledges will be monitored throughout the year to encourage the completion of the pledge by the end of 2021, however, the main way to show progress is through sharing content and by following the monthly Practical Guidance for the Inspire pillar. Monitoring will entail filling out a few questions about your progress in June and November 2021.
Stakeholders and individuals are encouraged to produce content every month to share the journey of their pledge. See the Practical Guide for suggestions on how you can communicate. We also ask that stakeholders and individuals post this content on social media with the hashtag #EndChildLabour2021.
