Humanitarian Crisis in Your Backyard

fictional refugeesGet a dose of dealing with an international crisis without leaving your time zone.

Registration is now open for the Humanitarian Crisis Simulation, organized by the University of Minnesota, September 11-13 in Cannon Falls, MN. It's a 48-hour experience that immerses participants in a typical (though in this case imaginary) humanitarian crisis. The simulation equips participants with experience and skills that will assist them in working in an actual humanitarian crisis.

Participants are divided into emergency response teams that apply their skills and knowledge to assess a fictional area experiencing a humanitarian crisis. They will develop a plan to address the many problems of the region, including malnutrition, poor infrastructure, insecurity and violations of human rights. Teams will experience living conditions that are common for professionals working in these situations.
