Global Refugee Simulation & Conference - March 29-30

Visit for the conference live-stream, March 30, 10 am-2 pm EST.

Saturday, March 29

The Red Cross will host a realistic, six hour refugee simulation, intended to educate participants about the challenges that refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) endure. Participants will work in groups simulating families and together will have to escape a war zone, traverse minefields, cross a patrolled border, and find accommodation in a refugee camp that will require securing food, seeking medical attention, and building a shelter, all while staying within assigned roles.
