Refugee Run at the World Economic Forum 2014

Refugees tell us, “You cannot understand a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes”. The Refugee Run invites participants to take a few steps in the shoes of a refugee.

The Refugee Run offers a depth of understanding well beyond the reach of a speech or discussion panel. It is not a talk. It is a simulation in which you participate: an opportunity to encounter, first hand, some of the struggles and choices that refugees and IDPs must face for survival.

This simulation has been designed by refugees, IDPs, UN and NGO colleagues to create as realistic a scenario as possible and to target issues that need addressing by global leaders: ethnic conflict, military arrogance, corruption, dis-empowerment and frustration.
