Webinar 'Working together to end the sexual exploitation of children'
Skål International Webinar Series #RebuildingTourism
'What can you do today to make a difference? Working together to end the sexual exploitation of children'.
With the participation of The Code.
The current COVID-19 crisis and restrictions are affecting the modus operandi of child sex offenders. No country or child, is immune immune to this ever-growing risk. The numbers are shocking: It is estimated that around 3 million people travel the world with the intention of sexually exploiting children under the age of 18.
We live in a fast-moving world with dangers and threats, and from our position in the travel and tourism industry, we must stand up and support actions like those of The Code, keeping children safe.
