What is humanitarianism?
KS3: ages 11-14Website

The Red Cross is a humanitarian organisation, but what does that mean?

The activities in this British Red Cross resource have been designed to help learners (ages 12 to 14) unpack the concept of humanitarianism, beginning with what it means to be human and building on this in sequential stages.

The idea of human dignity is introduced as a particularly important aspect of humanitarianism and the resource concludes by looking at what it means to be a humanitarian.

Learners will:

  • Consider what makes us human
  • Explore the concept of humanitarianism and what it means (to them and others)
  • Explore the idea of human dignity
  • Explain what it means to be a humanitarian.
