What Does a Crisis Simulation Look Like?A typical GCS committee, will present 15-30 delegates with a case and have them simulate a major decision making body while realistically adhering to that organization’s goals. Over three days, delegates will be asked to create actionable solutions to the problems presented while operating in a simulated ‘crisis’ environment. Delegates will need to respond to new information as it comes in and think creatively about balancing long-term objectives with short-term realities. Delegates will solve these issues while navigating through the unique challenges presented by each sector.
Expected OutcomesAt the end of the 3 day conference, 500 student leaders will have explored an international, interdisciplinary issue in a crisis setting. Delegates will come away with a deeper understanding of the issues and will have used their problem solving, teamwork and communication skills in a fast-paced setting. Delegates will develop transferable skills, an integrated network and an appreciation for the value of interdisciplinary understanding. In the long term, the GCS hopes to provide an alumni network and become a premier event for delegates interested in simulating and exploring international topics in an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural setting while broadening their skills and developing a global outlook on the problems that face international leaders today.
