From March 12-14, the World Issues Service Learning Group visited Geneva to see firsthand the NGOs they learn about all year. The annual trip's highlights included visiting the World Trade Organisation, the United Nations, and the Red Cross Red Crescent. Seven students and two chaperones spent three days in sunny Geneva, touring the city and strengthening their friendships. One of the highlights was the tour of the United Nations. Students were able to observe the main conference room (what most see on TV during any UN broadcast) where the delegates for the Council on Human Rights was meeting. They also experienced a private tour of the brand new Red Cross Red Crescent museum. Students enjoyed several hands-on interactive exhibits that embody the mission of the organisation. They ate delicious meals during the weekend, but especially loved having sushi take-away on the train ride back, a perfect meal to end a perfect trip!
