“The Slovenian Red Cross would like to extend its gratitude to Borut Pahor, the President of the Republic of Slovenia, for his honorary patronage of FACE 2016.”

The Slovenian Red Cross is proud and pleased to have been given the opportunity to allow the best European Red Cross teams to test their on site skills and abilities at simulations of various life-threatening situations, in the year that we celebrate 150 years of successfully facing various challenges. The event will be organised in the area of and cooperation with the FACE 2016 sponsor City Municipality of Ljubljana, this year’s European Green Capital, and in close cooperation with the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Slovenia, the Administration of the Republic of Slovenia for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Slovenia.

The most predictable characteristic of every humanitarian crisis is its unpredictability. This is why the constantly present need to be well prepared for quick responses is one of the most important public mandates of the Slovenian Red Cross. The fact that the current winner of the European First Aid Convention comes from Slovenia, more exactly the Grosuplje association of the Slovenian Red Cross, proves that we are not only well but extremely well prepared.

See you soon in Ljubljana!
