About the talk:

When Henri Dunant, the future founder of the Red Cross, arrived on the battlefield of Solferino, in North Italy, in 1859, he was appalled by the human tragedy of the thousands of people dying and wounded. He leveraged his negotiations to save lives. Today, in a global pandemic, the Red Cross and other humanitarian frontliners continue to use the power of responsible negotiation to mitigate the consequences of nature-made or human-made disasters.
