The Humanitarian Trail is like an open-space museum featuring walking routes between landmarks that are rich in history and symbolism, with temporary exhibitions and events to experience along the way, all based on the themes of the 33rd International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.

From 4 December to 12 December, the general public and schools are offered the unique opportunity, through two trails, to:
– Explore the conference themes by visiting historical and other relevant places and by attending temporary events across the city of Geneva
– Learn about the Red Cross journey from its origins through to the challenges of today and the future.

Trail 1: The Humanitarian Legacy – Old Town
Discover how a handful of Genevan citizens started the Red Cross story and how it quickly unfolded into humanitarian action and, later, the development of international humanitarian law.

Trail 2: The Humanitarian Journey – International Quarter
Explore the fascinating story of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, follow the remarkable development of international humanitarian action and law and learn about emerging and future challenges.

Choose the trail you wish to follow on the map, download the brochure and discover for yourself the fascinating story of the Red Cross and Red Crescent and the emerging challenges that will shape the evolution of humanitarian action and law.
