By helping National Societies establish their own innovation support systems, tailored to their unique needs, contexts and objectives, we are sowing the seeds of transformation within the IFRC network.
Spanish Red Cross have opened their Tech Awards to all Red Cross & Red Crescent volunteers and staff around the world who have been creating and deploying innovative technology solutions for their communities and National Societies. This is Your Award!
Participants of Limitless were invited to create short-form videos outlining the challenges they faced in their communities, their proposed solutions and resources required. Through Action Translate, these videos were able to be translated into 17 languages – enabling worldwide distribution.
The following report highlights some of our key insights and learning in the program and then outlines the process we used to deliver it. We hope this is helpful for others considering similar efforts.
comment pouvons-nous mieux co-concevoir et prototyper les technologies émergentes en plaçant les communautés au cœur du processus ? Au cours de l’année écoulée, la Croix-Rouge du Népal, la Croix-Rouge du Cameroun, Nesta UK et l’Académie de Solferino de la FICR ont entrepris cette réflexion. Les équipes ont exploré comment les technologies émergentes, en particulier l’intelligence artificielle (IA), pouvaient contribuer à l’efficacité du travail humanitaire en impliquant les communautés dans la conception, dans deux contextes très différents. Ce projet a été réalisé pendant une pandémie mondiale, avec diverses situations d’urgence en cours et les complexités quotidiennes de la réponse humanitaire.
How can we better co-design and prototype emerging technology with communities at the center? Over the past year, Nepal Red Cross, Cameroon Red Cross, Nesta UK, and IFRC Solferino Academy explored how emerging technology, specifically Artificial Intelligence (AI), could support the effective delivery of humanitarian work by involving communities in the design in two very different contexts. This project was done during a global pandemic and ongoing emergencies with the everyday complexities of humanitarian response.
Following a successful pilot in 2021, FutureFellows will be back this year! We will launch the call for applications on Wednesday 30...
Imagine. It’s 2051. The town/place where you live has undergone significant changes over the past generation.
Inspiring and mobilising volunteerism – is one of the transformations in the IFRC Strategy 2030, which we have together committed to achieve in the coming years. But what does this actually entail, and where do we begin?
Strategy 2030 embodies The Red Cross and Red Crescent long-standing vision and further enhances it, to ensure that it remains a dynamic global network of organisations that are fit for purpose and always thereto accompany people and communities.
How does humanitarian response need to change to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century emerging across the globe? Four thought leaders coming from four different continents will convene in the same space to engage in a provocative and honest discussion
On October 12-14, 2021, we came together as the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and organised a global, virtual summit Planet:Red. The focus of this summit was on two of the greatest threats in contemporary times, the climate crisis and pandemics, and also on stepping up the Movement’s local action to drive global impact on the humanitarian dimensions of both.
