May 8th marked the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, celebrating the Red Cross Principles in action all over the world.

At RCN students and staff could take pictures with statements expressing solidarity, calculate their personal slavery footprint, indicating the number of slaves that work for each and everyone of us, win a cupcake if they knew all the seven principles of the Red Cross, and take part in several other activities.

The newly-founded Red Cross Youth Group at the College organized all events, trying to emphasize the connection between the school and the Red Cross.

We were very happy with the turn out of the day, as many people had conversations about the Red Cross Principles and their meaning both for us here and in other places in the world.
