The Evacuation Challenge Game presents challenges connected with disaster response and evacuation during a disaster (in this case – a zombie apocalypse!) in a culturally and linguistically diverse environment. Participants take on the roles of citizens and rescue team members, soon realizing that the road to safety won’t be easy.

Evacuation in the face of a disaster poses a challenge for all parties involved. Panic and confusion are no friends to neither the rescue team nor to the evacuees. But there are many more obstacles on the road to safety than people normally think of. The Evacuation Challenge Game is just the right tool to help you realize them.
