What would you do if you were forced to leave your possessions, your home, and everything you had ever known? Where would you go? Who would you trust? What lengths would you go to in order to keep yourself and your family safe?
The Global Refugee Simulation & Conference, taking place March 29-30 in Washington, DC, will bring this challenge to life for you. For one day, you must fight to survive against impossible odds. You must strive to maintain normalcy while escaping political conflict and violence. The two-day event consists of a Simulation on March 29th coupled with a Digital Conference on March 30th.
|The Simulation, taking place at Bull Run Park in Virginia, is an experiential learning opportunity through which participants will gain an understanding of common obstacles and challenges that refugees face. Additionally, a major portion of the simulation will feature an ultra-realistic refugee camp.|
|The Conference is a four hour live-streamed Digital Round Table during which viewers get the opportunity to participate in a global conversation about refugee issues. The conference will feature several subject matter experts who will engage in lively debate, directly answering viewer questions in real-time via social media platforms. High-level spokespersons and deployed staff on the ground in refugee camps will also participate and answer questions by utilizing live-video technology.|
