Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross
Limited Capacity seats available

Brilliant speaker Steve Houser dives deep into what makes Red Cross/Red Crescent able to operate in 191 countries, even in areas off limits to other NGOs and governments.  Brings it home with how decisions on our local DAT and shelter operations are guided by these principles.  By the end of the course, you'll be able to explain to others WHY Red Cross does what it does.  

The Fundamental Principles guide the work and decisions of all Red Cross Red Crescent workers in all situations and at all times.

The 2-hour class describes the history of these Principles and how they were developed based on the Movement’s experience responding to suffering and needs over the previous century. The course further describes each of the Fundamental Principles and explains how they are at once operational and aspirational, and serve both as a guide for action and as the Movement’s common identity and purpose
