In 2019, the Social Economic Council (SER) and other stakeholders hosted the conference "Future of Work" to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the International Labour Organization (ILO). This event marked the beginning of a strategic process to prepare Curaçao for the future of work, shaped by the climate crisis, technological advancements, and the challenge of inequality.

A follow-up conference was held in 2023 to assess progress and outline further actions. The conclusion was clear: much more needs to be done to address the ongoing challenges. As a result, a manifesto emphasizing the commitment to continuous improvement was signed, and a monitoring committee was established to oversee the process.

The monitoring committee evaluates and reports on progress toward these goals. Its first report is scheduled for release in 2025, providing a comprehensive overview of Curaçao's advancements and areas needing further attention in the journey toward a sustainable and equitable future of work.
