How can we transform our world by 2030?
By playing the 2030 SDGs Game!
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 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 goals and 169 targets set by the United Nations to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, ideally by the year 2030. Click here for more information about the Sustainable Development Goals.
The 2030 SDGs Game was designed in Japan in 2016 by Imacocollabo. Since then, this experience has become a powerful and impactful social phenomenon, earning extensive media coverage, and gaining momentum worldwide.
It has now arrived in Australia! And you have the opportunity to participate in a session with the EcoCentre's certified facilitator.
The game is a tremendous resource and catalyst for anyone who wants to inspire, motivate, and empower their community or organisation to embrace a vision of a sustainable world.
The game provides three powerful benefits to communities and organisations:
- It gives participants a direct experience of participating in co-creating a sustainable world.
- It simplifies and makes accessible an extremely complex issue to a level that allows participants to begin to understand the Sustainable Development Goals, while stimulating our natural curiosity to learn more.
- It activates participants' natural instincts to set their aim toward a worthy goal, simultaneously building confidence and making it enjoyable, while inspiring and motivating players to take action in the real world.
