When the 32nd International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent convenes in December, will the voices of people at the grass roots be heard? A Movement-wide initiative called Voices to Action, launched in August, answers that question with an interactive, online platform aimed at ensuring that global discussions in December reflect local needs. The idea is to engage National Society staff and volunteers in a dialogue on the three themes of the International Conference: preventing and responding to violence; safety and access; and risk reduction and resilience.
