Experiential Learning: A Journey into Exile

English / Open to all / Free *with a suggested 10$ contribution / Registration required 

Description: A Journey into Exile is a role-playing activity that puts you in the shoes of refugees.Our goal is to help people understand that refugees are human beings and to promote empathy, openness, and solidarity. You will follow their journey through the Zoom platform. You will have to make decisions to survive. The activity cannot give you the full experience of being a refugee, but through refugee testimony videos, survey responses, statistics and discussion, you will get a taste of what it’s like to be a refugee. The activity will be followed by a presentation by Denise Otis, Head of the UNHCR Field Unit in Montreal.  Are you ready to go?

Registration required before September 26
