Prevention, protection and prosecution related to the sexual exploitation and abuse of children

Sexual violation against a child destroys a human being’s future. One in five children are victims of sexual offences. We want to protect them from this traumatic experience.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Lanzarote Convention deals with prevention, protection and prosecution related to the sexual exploitation and abuse of children. It asks states to criminalise all forms of such acts including child prostitution, child pornography and grooming. 42 states have so far ratified the treaty, which remains the most comprehensive international document protecting children and prosecuting aggressors.

A series of videos on children’s rights is available, aimed at breaking the silence and raising awareness of the problem.
The video Tell someone you trust was prepared with the help of children. It explains what the Lazarote Convention does for them.
The key messages of the video, available in a number of languages, are explained in the related booklet. You can order it from
Further information on children’s rights:

Ángela invites us to admire Sorolla

The “Museo de Bellas Artes” is opening a new temporary exhibition in Murcia today. Sorolla Tierra Adentro is a selection of the artist’s oeuvre, including some of his full of light and bright colour inland scenery.

Joaquín Sorolla was a Spanish painter whose style was a variant of Impressionism. His best works, painted in the open air, are a vivid description of sunny Valencia coast.

The exhibition will be open until December 17th, 2017.

Dictionary Day

Celebrate it here.
Read an article on the day from The Independent.

There is power in language, in the command of a broad vocabulary consisting of many words. Poets use words to describe a great and beautiful world, to enchant us and enlighten us. Scientists fiddle out the minutest of miracles in the functioning of the world, and pass them on by using precise and clear language that transmits information from one to another. So it is only fitting that such a thing as Dictionary Day would exist to encourage us to challenge our vocabulary, to broaden it and perhaps take an opportunity to expand our language to the full scope of the tongue’s diversity.
