    Documentation of field operations

    (23.10.2019) In January 2019, five counties in Upper Bavaria officially declared the emergency status due to heavy snowfalls. The German Red Cross documented the snow operation in Bavaria from the perspective of the Bavarian Red Cross, based on interviews with full-time staff and volunteers. The documentation focuses on the affected population, major challenges in providing assistance for the most vulnerable people as well as maintaining the reliability of health infrastructures.

    Digital Volunteers

    (19.08.2019) The second part of Volume 5 is dealing with the role of Digital Volunteers - people who help in a crisis via the internet. This potential of digital assistance also offers many new opportunities for volunteering in disaster management. As an example, a digital volunteer can be deployed as a social media expert, assist in monitoring social Media, or even conduct digital social space mapping and other tasks that can be done online. International concepts and research results from the K3 project, workshops and an deployment exercise offer precise information of possible implementation within the GRC.

    Kick-off meeting BuildERS

    (08.-10.05.2019) On the 1st of May 2019, the European research project BuildERS started, in which the GRC is involved as a research partner. Among numerous outlines submitted to the EU under the Horizont2020 funding programme, BuildERS is one of very few projects to be funded. The aim of the project is to identify the most vulnerable population groups in crises in a pan-European comparison and to increase their resilience. Within the framework of the three-year project, the GRC will conduct a case study in Germany.
