10 years ago, when we had a small idea – invite CEOs and leaders to spend 24 hour sleeping out and living like those in need – we could not have predicted what we have seen. More than 150,000 people have now participated in one of our simulations and activities, all around the world.

As 2015 is the 10th anniversary of our Global X-perience programmes, we marked the occasion with our 10th Global Survivor. They may not have looked like refugees, but when a group of soldiers burst from the bushes, shouting and intimidating, this small group of, 15 intrepid invitees, were feeling a taste of the fear and confusion that millions of displaced people face. They made their own slum houses from scraps, ate the kinds of food common in some slums in developing nations, stepped into the shoes of refugees and the urban poor, and they talked at length about how they could use their influence and resources to make a difference in the world.

It was another profound event and we are thankful for all those who have participated in one our x-periences, for the past 10 years.
