In contemporary society, work represents not only the main means of subsistence for human life, but also the element capable of guaranteeing security, responding to the needs of belonging and self-fulfillment and defining the relationship between oneself and the others in a wider context.
The world of work, however, in recent decades has undergone a very rapid transformative process and it has been influenced, on a global level, by a wide range of factors, with specific consequences in different territorial areas.
For some years the International Labour Organization has introduced the concept of “decent work”, promoting a positive scenario in which employment is carried out in conditions of freedom, equality, security and human dignity for men and women, with self-respect, in well-being and guaranteeing personal development for each human being. These are all key requirements for the achievement of sustainable development and social justice.
The Posterheroes competition, that has reached its 9th edition, aims to support ILO in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, stimulating reflection on these issues.
