The Estonian Convention Bureau and Tallinn Convention Bureau, in collaboration with Publicon PCO and local authorities, associations and universities, have won the bid for the annual European Congress of the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse & Neglect (ISPCAN) in June 2022.
Under the theme ‘Child Protection for the Most Vulnerable Children and Families’, the 4-day congress is expected to gather 600 international delegates to the city who will discuss every aspect of child protection.
“We are proud that the ISPCAN Congress will take place in the Baltic region for the first time. It will be an excellent opportunity to showcase our experiences in the sphere of child protection, in relation to dealing with child abuse and neglect in Estonia as well as being the initiator of discussions on these matters on an international arena,” said Brit Tammiste, the head of the organising committee of the ISPCAN 2022. “Different digital solutions have an important role in the development of a country, as organizers we could introduce application opportunities from the perspective of child protection as well as organizing the Congress.”
