British Red Cross: working across boarders

Red Cross delegates describe their personal experiences working in crisis situations for the world’s largest independent humanitarian organisation.

This year’s lecture at the Royal Geographic Society will be hosted by Sir Nick Young, Chief Executive at the British Red Cross. Red Cross workers will describe their personal experiences working for the world’s largest independent humanitarian organisation.

The Red Cross is a non-political, non-religious organisation and this neutrality provides us with unique access around the globe. The Red Cross is often the only organisation able to cross boarders and front lines to bring help wherever it is needed in the world.

This lecture provides a unique opportunity to find out what life is really like for the Red Cross when working in crisis situations. At the end of the talk there will be time for questions from the floor.

Tickets cost £12 each and are available online at www.redcross.org.uk/lecture
