Coastal Promise is a full-scale 4-day field simulation. It recreates the challenges and conditions professionals encounter in complex emergencies characterized by conflict, disaster, and humanitarian need. During the event, participants, acting as members of a non-governmental organization, engage in intensive negotiations, humanitarian assistance, peacebuilding assessment, and human rights advocacy as part of a scenario based on a realistic conflict or humanitarian crisis.

Once you have filled out this form, you will receive a confirmation email with a link indicating where to make your payment for participation in Coastal Promise March 2018. Thereafter, you will receive information about how to prepare for the simulation by email. The fee is $625 US for enrolled students.
Coastal Promise will be held March 15-18, 2018 in Fellsmere, Florida, USA. Participants must arrange their own transportation to Florida. The Forage Center can pick up participants from local airports. The City of Fellsmere, and Operation Hope, a local service organization, host the Forage Center.

If you have any questions or concerns (including about enrollment or scholarships), please contact David J. Smith, Forage Center President, at, or visit for more information.
