Let’s Talk! Online is a creative global dialogue think-tank with the intention of enhancing social dialogue to enable all people to benefit from globalisation. The Let's Talk! forum serves a dual purpose:
- To develop real-life applicable solutions that help us deal effectively with some of the key challenges of the 21st century, such as the future of work, which includes labour market conditions, education and climate change,
- and to build trustful relationships between key actors in society, thereby making it more resilient in meeting known and unknown challenges.
The forum addresses the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aims to make a difference.
The forum is a process-oriented workshop spread out over four weeks. An interactive process is facilitated along a structured timeline featuring real dialogue and exchange between the participants themselves at the forum’s core. This combination removes barriers, allowing free and out-of-the-box thinking where everyone is given the floor to speak freely in open-minded dialogues. In order to facilitate lasting relationships and build trust, participants will work not only on a regional level but also in country groups, aiming at inspiring tangible initiatives that can be carried out jointly after the forum.
The Let’s Talk! Online 2020: The Africa Chapter is organised in partnership between the Swedish Institute, the Swedish Trade Union Confederation (LO) and the Global Deal. The organising partners share the common view of Let´s Talk! as an important initiative to share the knowledge and experience of the positive impact of social dialogue on the prosperities of labour markets and society as a whole.
