In the 10th anniversary year of Giving Women, the Zurich Chapter of Giving Women invites you to an afterwork discussion

Humanitarian issues today & how to address them

Migration crisis, climate change, political turbulences,… How to rethink our emergency response in face of new humanitarian challenges

26 September 2019, 18:30 to 21:00

Schoffelgasse 7,
8001 Zürich

Medair and Giving Women invite you to have a look at current humanitarian issues and consider together future perspectives of the humanitarian sector through innovative solutions.

The humanitarian context is in mutation. The crises have multiplied and become ever more complex. The humanitarian actors need to innovate if they want to continue to respond efficiently. Loyal to its mandate, Medair adapts its emergency response to continue to support the most vulnerable populations. During this afterwork discussion, Medair will share with us innovative solutions addressed to these populations in need.
