2030 SDGs Game
In January 2020, Delwyn Langdon, the EcoCentre Manager, travelled to Japan to be trained as a Certified Facilitator for the 2030 SDGs Game. We now have the opportunity to offer this game to government, business, not-for-profit or non-government organisations, community groups and schools.
The 2030 SDGs Game is a multiplayer, in-person, card-based game that simulates taking the "real world" into the year 2030 using the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The game was designed in Japan in 2016 by Imacocollabo and the experience has become a powerful and impactful social phenomenon, earning extensive media coverage, and gaining momentum worldwide. for more information about the game, visit https://2030sdgsgame.com/
If you are interested in hosting a game for your organisation, please email us with the number of participants, preferred location (your venue or ours) and preferred dates (if known).
ECOCENTRE COMMUNITY FORUMS
For over 15 years, the EcoCentre has enjoyed sharing knowledge and providing a platform for teaching people how to live a more sustainable lifestyle and how to connect more with the world around us.
With presenters from all walks of life such as academics, professionals, industry, government and community groups we have bought the wider community together to share their passion for sustainability and the environment.
You can be a part of it too. Everyone is welcome.
We are happy to hear from anyone who has an idea for a forum topic or if you are interested in presenting at the EcoCentre, please contact us.
