Maestro Claudio Abbado and the Orchestra Mozart launched the "Music Against Child Labour" Initiative at a concert at the Salle Pleyel in Paris, France on 11 June 2013. The Initiative, from the ILO's International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) together with its partners in the world of music, calls on orchestras, choirs and musicians of all genres worldwide to dedicate one concert in their planned repertoire between October 2013 and December 2014 to raise awareness about child labour. The Heliopolis Orchestra will open the global concert series on 8 October at the III Global Conference on Child Labour in Brazil. The Initiative also seeks to encourage further action to engage children in musical activity and education to promote their social inclusion and help protect them against child labour. (ILOTV)
