The Code is a set of 6 guidelines travel and tourism companies implement to put in place policies and procedures to identify and protect children from sexual exploitation. (www.thecode.org)
This webinar will examine the issue of sexual exploitation of children as it intersects with the travel and tourism industry, identify the role ATTA members have in addressing the issue, and talk about real world implementation of the Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct.
