As the IFRC celebrates its 100 years, we look back at 100 years of service and, at the same time look into the future where Strategy 2030 envisages a network that embraces young people as idea generators, innovators and mobilisers for humanitarian causes. The IFRC is organizing the 100 Ideas Challenge to celebrate the new ideas of the coming century and the role of young people in driving social change. We are asking young people to submit their ideas for innovative projects that could make a difference in their community and world.
By Grégoire Ducret, Director of Strategy and Innovation, French Red Cross
Our transformation starts with adopting an agile culture of organization, to be able to act “anywhere and anytime”, strengthening the positive social impact of the French Red Cross. This requires building a strong common culture and ensuring workplace well-being, giving the means to each volunteer and employee to adapt to change, to give a contemporary meaning to the mission and to the historical values of the association, to promote cooperation and to allow everyone to learn and engage.
