Solutions Summit

In February 2018, more than 400 people from over 60 countries met in Stockholm, Sweden for the first-ever End Violence Solutions Summit. The Summit, which aimed to share solutions for preventing and responding to violence against children, brought together governments, United Nations agencies, non-governmental organisations, the private sector, and members of academic institutions and civil society — along with children and young people themselves.

Leaders from around the world gathered in Stockholm, Sweden, in February 2018, for the first End Violence Solutions Summit.

The Summit, which was co-hosted by the Government of Sweden, the WePROTECT Global Alliance, and End Violence, provided a forum for stakeholders from around the world to share stories and solutions, collaborate on accelerating action, and build political will.

Solutions can be delivered at scale, but only if we harness all energies across society: the private sector, the UN, the public sector and civil society.

The event harnessed unprecedented global collaboration for ending violence against children, ushering in a new era in the movement to keep children safe from violence.

More than 450 participants, including leaders from government, the United Nations, civil society, and the private sector, made the Solutions Summit a success.
