Humanitarian Simulations

Compete, Innovate, and Inspire

Launching: 09/2024

What are the Lifelines Humanitarian Simulations?

Our Humanitarian Simulations are global competitions that will take place in both 2024 and 2026 with a theme sponsored by one of our Humanitarian Wayfinders. Teams will compete to find new and innovative solutions to humanitarian challenges with a focus on how earth science and technology can be leveraged to improve humanitarian efforts. Themes for the simulations will be chosen by our Wayfinders, but illustrative examples include a “where’s waldo: a search and rescue mission” or “food drop from space: a supply chain mission.” Winners will be invited to pitch at Ready for Impact with a Wayfinder endorsement.
