Webinar: Proactive vs. Reactive hotline communication

Schedule & Registration

Click here to register.


This webinar will explore campaign approaches and how hotlines can actively communicate with young people on the topic of child sexual abuse and exploitation. 2022 is the year to speak up! Make the voice of young people heard and shine light on the importance of building a better future.

With this opportunity in mind, we will kick start this discussion with an opening from Insafe, which will lead to an interactive poll to explore different approaches to communicating and the value of campaigning. INHOPE will then chair a discussion with two long-standing Senior Better Internet for Kids (BIK) Youth Ambassadors who will provide their perspectives on the importance of campaigning on the following topics:

  • the balance between raising awareness of the issues surrounding child sexual abuse material (CSAM) and asking for action to be taken, such as reporting
  • effective techniques for hotlines to communicate to young adults and children.

A unique opportunity to share your approach, getting direct feedback from Youth Ambassadors with over two decades worth of experience in European and Global initiatives so that you and your organisation can move forward with confidence in creating engaging on message campaigns.

We recommend this webinar to hotlines, helpline, child advocacy groups, Industry, NGOs and more.
