ONE in FIVE campaign: seminar to combat sexual exploitation of children at local and regional level
As part of its contribution to the Council of Europe ONE in FIVE campaign, the Congress organised a seminar in Strasbourg, France, on 9 February 2012 (Palais de l’Europe, room 5). It gathered a panel of experts, grassroots players and local and regional elected representatives. The aim of the Congress is to propose, on the basis of the experiences presented, model bodies to be set up at local and regional level to prevent the sexual exploitation of children and to protect and support victims and their families. The seminar was opened by Maud de Boer Buquicchio, Deputy Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Keith Whitmore, President of the Congress, and Emin Yeritsyan, President of the Congress Current Affairs Committee. Those wishing to take part in the seminar must register by 6 February 2012 at the latest.
