First look at “The Day My Life Froze”

Here is a first look at LLST’s full-scale educational simulation, titled “The Day My Life Froze: Urban Refugees in the Humanitarian System”, which Matt is pushing into its testing phase later this month.

These first-draft components block out the mechanics relating to decision making at the level of refugee households, in which household heads must allocate the time that family members spend on working, schooling, registration for schooling, and searching out new solutions to problems.

Households “innovate” to search for new solutions to difficult problems
Food, cash, housing, and quality of life are managed on the “Household Management Chart”
Gendered access to different opportunities models intersectionality, while household heads are given a range of actions to apply humanitarian aid in both intended and unintended ways.

Stay tuned for more updates as testing continues!
