Sexualized violence against children occurs everywhere in the world. It is globally condemned and yet there is no sign that these crimes are decreasing. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is very clear. Target 16.2 states: “End abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against and torture of children.” To succeed, we have to collaborate on all levels – nationally, regionally and globally - using different strategies and methods.
Change Attitude, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, Swedish Institute, Embassy of Sweden and Save the Children Sweden have the pleasure to invite you to a conference about Swedish and American perspectives on strategies to prevent sexualized violence against children. In particular, the focus will be on the power of culture to inspire people to act to end one of the world’s worst human rights violations of today.We will present unique cultural projects including the short film project Break the Silence, the serious game Hidden in the Zoo to prevent grooming, and art-based projects that inspire creative action to end sexualized violence against children.
Please join us at House of Sweden for an engaging conversation on how to combat sexualized violence against children together!
Registration and coffee from 9:30 am.
