Three separate areas, each developed by a well-known exhibition architect from a different cultural background, allow you to explore three major challenges in today’s world : Defending Human Dignity (Gringo Cardia, Brazil), Restoring Family Links (Diébédo Francis Kéré, Burkina Faso), Reducing Natural Risks (Shigeru Ban, Japan).
Going beyond the troubled periods of history or present-day conflict zones, these contemporary issues are of concern to each of us today and, in a wider perspective, will affect our common future for decades to come.

An interactive chronology unfurls 150 years of humanitarian history, while On the spot enables you to track Red Cross and Red Crescent operations right around the globe.

A visit not to be missed, shared with twelve contemporary witnesses.
