2 Culture Geneva and its international Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum

Emotion, discovery, reflection: the Museum offers you a unique opportunity to enter into the history of humanitarian action. Three separate areas, each developed by a well-known exhibition architect, allow you to explore three major challenges in today’s world: Defending human dignity (Gringo Cardia, Brazil), Reconstructing the amily link (Diébédo Francis Kéré, Burkina Faso) and Refusing fatality (Shigeru Ban, Japan). In the "On the spot" area, a large interactive globe shows the latest news from the field.

Contact

Defending human dignity : Human dignity implies respect for the life and integrity of individuals. Long protected by texts from all cultures, respect for human dignity calls for constant vigilance: new challenges are continually arising.

Restoring Family Links : Human beings are social beings who are defined by their links with others. When those links are broken, they lose part of their identity and their bearings.
Giving and receiving news and finding one’s loved ones again are elements of stability that are even more essential during crisis situations.

Reducing natural risks : Humanity has progressed by refusing to accept the inevitability of the phenomena that endanger it. In the face of natural disasters and epidemics, communities take action to prevent the worst, to save lives and to preserve resources.
