19 Aug 2019


Humanitarian and long-distance runner, Assistant-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Ursula Mueller: “In humanitarian work you need stamina, strength and focus.”

When she is not briefing the Security Council or on mission to conflict zones, ASG Ursula Mueller keeps up her mental and physical fitness by long-distance running – and playing classical piano. Here we follow her running club as she describes how running helps her keep up the stamina, focus and strength required for humanitarian work.
