Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, this event is postponed until further notice.

How can we transform our world by 2030?

By playing the 2030 SDGs Game and sharing it with the next generation.

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. For more information about the SDGs go to https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/

This is a unique and targeted teaching resource to understand how the SDGs can be implemented in the real world.

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!

The game is a tremendous resource and catalyst for any teacher who wants to inspire, motivate, and empower their students or school to embrace a vision of a sustainable world.

Based on the cross-curriculum priority of sustainability, the game would be ideally suited to teachers of:

  • Years 7 - 12 Geography
  • Years 11 - 12 Earth and Environmental Science
  • Years 11 - 12 Marine Science
  • Years 11 - 12 Biology
  • Years 11 - 12 Aquatic Practices
  • Years 11 - 12 Agricultural Science
  • Years 11 - 12 Agricultural Practices

Any teacher who has an interest in sustainability and/or the Sustainable Development Goals is also welcome. The game is not exclusive to only the above curricula.

The game provides three powerful benefits:
  1. It gives participants a direct experience of participating in co-creating a sustainable world.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
