Theme: Breathing

Breathing is a simple action, but each breath tells a story. From joy to sadness, from hope to light, every breath is a reminder of the life around us.

Join us as we explore this essential act, revealing the interconnectedness between forests, water, air and all the ecosystems around us. Ask yourself: Who are the agents of change shaping a breathable future for all? How do the humanitarian values and important actions of the International Federation of the Red Cross align with this theme?
