A delegation from RCN attended the ‘Resilience for Real’ Conference in Oslo with over 300 participants from the Red Red Crescent, the UN, European Union, NGOs, universities, research institutions and the private sector. The conference focused on the need for a shift in humanitarian action towards the proactive tackling of risks rather than just reactively responding to crises.

Avis (Red Cross Coordinator), Emma (Red Cross Student Rep) and Balder (Board Rep) represented RCN at the conference and met with key note speakers including Elhadj As Sy, Secretary General of the IFRC, and Hugo Slim, Head of Policy for the ICRC.
