Yina’s thoughts

February 19, 2010
By Yina_Ma

The first thing that interests me so much in my first tour in Red Cross building is the good atmosphere. I used to think that this kind of offices always look cool, professional and serious.

By Maya_Sariahmed

What I’m really interested in seeing what sorts of projects open up with the IHL. For my thesis I have been doing a lot of research on how and why women are particularly vulnerable to climate change. I talked to Nigel a bit about this and how it could be tied into some of...

February 18, 2010
By Chris_Choi

I’ll try not to be redundant in describing the issues that were covered on the tour… International & domestic tracing of friends/family/etc. seems like something that I am very interested in.  I am a first generation American in my family so I still consider myself closely rooted to my family in Korea, both North and...

By Nigel_Snoad

One of the possible projects mentioned by the American Red Cross in Washington DC was focussed around their “Exploring Humanitarian Law” program. I’m yet to get many details from them as they’re all pretty swamped dealing with Haiti response work, but Phebean Cole from the ARC EHL program thinks there is “something” there for...

Nigel’s thoughts after the NYRCHQ tour

I really appreciate the thoughts others have outlined after the visit to the Red Cross NYHQ.  I think the posts below captured a lot of things, but I’m left thinking that there are a couple of real challenges & opportunities (and aren’t they the same thing?) that are often obscured by the immediacy of their...

By Rhiannon_Fox

All of the points raised so far have been in my notes from the visit. But their were three main issues I was very much interested in. 1. Although the international scale was not really talked about apart from a little on Haiti, I would still like to really figure out some main issues in...

February 18, 2010
By George_Bixby

During last Friday’s trip to the RC headquarters many interesting points were brought up. The following areas struck me as ones that could develop into interesting design problems: 1- Middle Band of Leadership (as Mathan already mentioned)- It was interesting to hear Scott’s insight, especially given his Military background, as to how the structure of...

My thoughts after the RC tour

My thoughts after the RC tour

There are few things that stuck with me after Fridays tour that I thought would be worth sharing. 1 – Scott mentioned that there are only three RC offices that are as technologically sophisticated as the NYRC office.
