The first ever Global Online Counter Child Trafficking Conference has selected Socialable as its social media partner. Founded by Forbes Social Media Power Influencer and visionary entrepreneur, Lilach Bullock, Socialable will raise much-needed awareness of the global exploitation and trafficking of children, and boost collaborative knowledge-sharing for the exclusively online conference.
Organised by child protection consultancy, touchpoint, and the Counter Human Trafficking Bureau, the three-day event, on 16th-18th October 2013, consists of over 40 webinars delivered by speakers from across the world. To ensure accessibility to those who are often not able to travel and afford training, it is free to register and participate. It will be the largest gathering of private sector, third sector and public sector professionals and practitioners from across the world, and will showcase some of the worlds most effective and innovative counter-trafficking practices from across Africa, America, Asia and Europe.
To be involved in such an inspirational and innovative event is an honour child trafficking is a modern day curse that is both shocking in its prevalence, and saddening in the impact it has on so many childrens lives, said Lilach Bullock, founder of Socialable. This digital age that we live in has huge opportunities for collaboration, and the building of meaningful online communities. Unfortunately, there is a darker side of society that sees it as an opportunity to exploit children through social media and other online tools. We will strive to raise awareness of this critical issue, and encourage people to join in with this free-to-attend anti-trafficking event.
Our Counter Child Trafficking Conference aims to connect the global counter-trafficking community to share and learn. We want to encourage further collaboration and partnering opportunities as we strive to strengthen the global response to child trafficking and exploitation. By doing this exclusively online, we can work across borders and bring together knowledge and experience in a truly collaborative online community in an accessible way, said An
