Over two million children are the victims of sexual exploitation around the world every year. It is a crime that is also facilitated by today’s tourist travel and infrastructure. It is our shared responsibility to protect children and adolescents from sexual exploitation in tourism.

They are held on 7 June 2010 at Cochin and 9 June 2010 at Goa.
