Sven Mollekleiv – Candidate for President of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies

The world today has never been in greater need of a strong and united Red Cross and Red Crescent.

In order to fulfill our unique mandate, Sven Mollekleiv believes that there are five central ideas that must be a basis for the work of the Governing Board, with all member national societies.


Under President Mollekleiv's presidency the Norwegian Red Cross has evolved to become one united organisation, one Red Cross, working across sectorial divisions to achieve common humanitarian goals.

Mr. Sven Mollekleivs 5 key points for a stronger Federation

1) Strong National Societies are the bedrock of a strong Federation

2) Volunteers are the backbone of our humanitarian action

3) Youth must lead us into the future

4) A strong team brings out the best in each individual member

5) Partnership with the corporate sector will secure and strengthen our foundation
