Nettivihje organised a seminar on child sexual abuse (CSA) and digital media with the Regional State Administrative Agencies on Thursday, 13 September in Jyväskylä, Finland.
This seminar addressed the need for knowledge and education with an audience of over 230 professionals working with children. It covered online child sexual abuse and exploitation, media literacy, safety skills for children, preventing online CSA, and the treatment of people who have sexual interest in children. This seminar also included presentations from LEA, ISP Telia Company, Criminal Sanctions Agency and National Institution of Health and Welfare.
The Finnish Hotline, Nettivihje, is now part of the international Project Arachnid and the second in Europe to connect with Canadian Centre for Child Protection to combat the growing proliferation of child sexual abuse material (CSAM) on the internet.
