The old proverb says, “I can’t understand a man unless I walk a mile in his shoes.”

Participants in our ‘Global X-perience’ programmes don’t simply hear a talk or watch a video about a world in need. They briefly step ‘into the shoes’, through simulation, of those who suffer. We offer simulation x-periences of poverty, war, HIV/AIDS vulnerability, blindness in poor nations, water challenges and many more issues. Full list here.

In particular, we offer these simulations to students, companies, NGOs and IGOs.

The major part of our simulation activity takes place in Hong Kong. We also routinely offer x-periential programmes in the UK. We are normally heavily booked up, but, when possible, we take them on the road to other countries. Thus far:

  • Jimmy WalesLondonAustralia
  • China
  • Indonesia
  • Japan
  • Kazakhstan
  • The Netherlands
  • Poland
  • Singapore
  • Switzerland  (World Economic Forum)
  • Thailand
  • Taiwan
  • US
  • Vietnam

For example, over recent years we have taken simulations to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where participants have included heads of state, CEOs and non-profit leaders. We have partnered with the United Nations, in several of these, to raise awareness among the global leaders gathered there. More.

We have also run the simulations for multi-national corporations and major non-profits in a range of countries, hoping to inspire many participants to engage with global issues to make a difference. Interested in requesting an international booking? Email us.
