Celebrate the incredible 100-year story of Australian Red Cross, and gain an understanding of how it continues to serve Australia and respond to the changing face of international humanitarianism.
Throughout its history Australian Red Cross has promoted International Humanitarian Law as a means to achieve a more humane battlefield.
In this regard, the continued existence of nuclear weapons remains one of its biggest concerns. Since their first use, the Red Cross has been calling for Nations to eliminate nuclear weapons and ensure they are never used again.
Australian Red Cross CEO Robert Tickner will explain the organisation’s recent campaign to eliminate the greatest threat posed to humanity.
This event is co-presented by the Hawke Centre and Australian Red Cross, marking the organisation’s centenary.

While the views presented by speakers within the Hawke Centre public program are their own and are not necessarily those of either the University of South Australia or The Hawke Centre, they are presented in the interest of open debate and discussion in the community and reflect our themes of: strengthening our democracy – valuing our diversity – and building our future.
