Advertising students of the School of Communication Arts have a great idea to fight human trafficking.

Volvo Cocoon is fighting human trafficking; the modern slavery of lies, coercion and violence. Millions of innocent lives are trafficked each year for various forms of exploitation such as prostitution, marriage and organ removal. In spite of the numerous variables in human trafficking cases, there is one constant – trucks are continuously used to transport victims into the dangerous unknown.

In an effort for prevention, SCA Advertising students, Katy and Alicia, have conjured up an idea to install a sensor technology in all Volvo trucks.
