After an information forum on Child Sex Tourism coordinated by the International Bureau for Children’s Rights (IBCR), Thomas Cook and SkyLink Voyages, agencies from the tourism and travel industry, on December 2, 2009 decided to act by forming a committee.


In close collaboration with the bureau, representatives created a banner with the objective to dissuade potential abusers and encourage travelers to report suspicious behaviors while abroad.


Ms. Colette Girard from Jolivac explains her commitment to the campaign: "During the forum, my colleagues and I were shocked to discover that men who have sexual relations with children or adolescents on their trips are mostly 'average Joes' who believe that they can do whatever they want in another country without any form of consequence. If we can influence even one individual with this campaign, we will have accomplished our goal in protecting children."
