Walk a Mile in My Shoes: A Migration Simulation

No amount of articles, documentaries or works of fiction can capture what it is like to uproot everything you have, leave behind everything you’ve ever know and embark on a hazardous journey to a land unknown. The Global Human Project would like to invite everyone to at least get a glimpse by participating in “Walk a Mile in My Shoes: A Migration Simulation.” At the beginning of this three-hour simulation, participants are assigned a small family, must attempt to enter a new country and go through the process of entering a United Nations refugee camp (where not everyone speaks your language). It’s a chance to expand your empathy and perspective about this often divisive issue.
