2nd edition of the European Day on the protection of children against sexual exploitation and sexual abuse
Sexual exploitation and sexual abuse of children is a topic that many people find difficult to speak about. The Council of Europe’s ONE in FIVE Campaign to stop sexual violence against children brought home the notion that many children are affected, many are at risk of being abused, and that protecting our children is an urgent imperative. Last year saw the launch of an annual European Day to continue awareness-raising efforts and to encourage outreach initiatives across our 47 member States. This Day of concerted action is on 18 November: you are welcome to take part in raising awareness in your own circles and communities.
