Journey Into Exile: An Interactive Simulation Exercise

February 10 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Jesuit Refugee Service Canada created an interactive simulation exercise called Journey Into Exile, which aims to provide an understanding of the realities faced by refugees seeking safety, security, and a better life.

As a participant, you will be assigned a refugee character with a brief biography, enabling you to make decisions based on your character’s circumstances. Through these decisions, you will learn about some of the challenges and choices refugees encounter.

During the activity, you will make decisions individually and as a group, listen to real refugee testimonies, and view videos that shed light on the journeys, obstacles, and resilience of refugees across the globe.

To participate, register by Wednesday, February 7th, by clicking here.
