to join the campaign against sexual violence


08.06.2011 - Involving children through the use of modern media and raising their media competence is the central theme of the 5th Annual Conference of the European Network ''Cities for Children'', in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-7 June.

This year’s European Award of Excellence in the category „Participation through New Media“ was presented by Congress President Keith Whitmore. ''The quality of any society is judged by its capacity to protect its most vulnerable, which applies first and foremost to children. A child-friendly world must be safe and violence-free,'' he stressed at the opening of the Conference, calling on the Network to join the Council of Europe campaign to stop sexual violence against children.
